Born Free

Born free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart

Live free, and beauty surrounds you
The world still astounds you
Each time you look at a star

*Stay free, where no walls divide you
You're free as a roaring tide
So there's no need to hide

Born free, and life is worth living
But only worth living
Cause you're born free

Lyrics by Don Black,
Music by John Barry
(Repeat *)

Sadly in August 1989 George Adamson was murdered in Kenya, East Africa by Somalian bandits when he went to the rescue of a young European tourist and his assistant in the Kora Reserve. He was a unique and wonderful gentleman who devoted his life to helping wildlife and to protecting the unique environment in which they lived. His was a rugged life style, in a bush camp with only a few modern conveniences.

He was a Hero to the end .... giving his life to save another!

George Adamson wrote in his book:

"Who will now care for the animals, for they cannot look after themselves? Are there young men and women who are willing to take on this charge? Who will raise their voices, when mine is carried away on the wind, to plead their case?"
