a person's a person, no matter how small

Happy Horton Hears a Who Day!

On the fifteenth of May
In the jungle of Nool,
In the heat of the day,
In the cool of the pool,
He was splashing --
Enjoying the jungle's great joys --
When Horton the elephant
Heard a small noise . . .
Yes, that is from memory (please excuse any erroneous punctuation). And no, I haven't seen the movie (furthermore, I am horrified that there is a movie, but that's probably for another post).

HHAW day is kind of like St. George's day, but mostly different.

It should be celebrated by reading Horton Hears a Who, preferably in the company of small children.
