Lily TomlinLily Tomlin is one of the best-loved women in America. She's an all-American natural born in Detroit. In her over 40-year career, she has won two Tonys, two Peabodys, six Emmys, a Grammy, the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle.

I personally admire her stand on animal welfare especially concerning the elephants. In her speech, Lily Tomlin speaks out:
She said "Elephants were never meant to live in confinement of small urban zoos, where they are suffering terribly every day. That's why I'm urging everyone to get involved in the first International Day of Action for Elephants in Zoos on June 20th and help bring about the mammoth changes that elephants so desperately need. I don't think anyone in their right mind would think a zoo display provides enough space for these giants of the earth. But if the public is informed, they will raise an outcry and demand change. It's time to stop the destructive practice of keeping elephants in zoos.
And I say, PERSECUTE ANIMAL ABUSERS! To think that man is an animal, why can't he be gentle to his lower kins.
