When someone cries everyone assumes it's because life is a challenge for tear-shedders who arouse sympathy but often times they are discarding happy emotions. When a guardian for beavers working on a dam thinks danger has entered their domain a mighty plunge into water is a splashing of urgent retreat momma & poppa proud of offspring with responsible tasks and that thought brings a wrinkle to their furry faces. When mother deer blows any warning to her young son she notices his firmness of muscle and quickstep lightly prancing by her side readying for instant flight. So do humans show pride and love for their young knowing footsteps will soon leave in journeys to faraway places.
