Dear Editor,

Re: Sharon Dulongs Jumbo poem in the Dec. 30, 2016 issue.

Dear Sharon; thank you for your intriguing and insightful JUMBO: A Poem (December 30th, 2016) in The Pioneer.

As I read into the body of the poem going through all the current events and future possibilities, I lost track of the title, concentrating on the predictionsthe message of change.

Then lo, the finale let my heart dance with the clear vision of the truth all supporting of keeping Jumbo wild hold dear . . . Jumbo is a sanctuary, without a doubt, and will be forever cherished and wild.
