  • Elephant Tethers (Mr Cumberland )

  • The assembly started with a picture of an elephant tied up with a small piece of string, far too weak to prevent it walking away. I explained that when elephants are young thy are tied up with rope and chains they cannot break and eventually they stop trying, they have learnt the tether cannot be broken, so that in later life regardless of what they are tethered with they do not even try to escape. I then considered the “elephant tethers” that we have that prevent us from making the most of our lives.
