I needed to do this, for my 19-month-old daughter. I needed to know the answers before she begins to ask the question, “Why?”. I needed to know what it’s like now, as an adult and as a father.
My family visited the L.A. Zoo this past Saturday. My wife, an animal rights advocate, painfully went along with my plan after some time of convincing. The plan was to visit my father, who was doing a remote broadcast for the radio station he works for in the Los Angeles area. I wanted to show our support for him and expose our daughter to some extremely unfamiliar sights and sounds: the people of Los Angeles.
