zedonk

A visual sequence that examines the issue of love in an unusual situation and prejudice from different appearances, nationalities, etc…

I would like to talk about Zedonk whose mother is a donkey and father is a zebra. This is an unusual situation. People did not believe that a donkey and a zebra can have their offspring. Even if they have their offspring the Zedonk cannot live healthily. However, they did and Zedonk is healthy. (BBC 30.Oct.2010)
I focused on power of love. Although appearances and nationalities are different and there is a gap between rich and poor, they can love and they are happy. The story is designed to show children can learn power of love regardless of appearances and their differences and Zedonk image makes this story more interesting.

I have many friends
