Jotting Judi - The Circle of Life
A favorite Disney movie that children of all ages watch over and over is Lion King. I’m sure you’ve seen it; the story of Simba, a lion cub, who grows up on the Savannahs of Africa.

It calls to mind the dramatic scene in the Roots saga of Kunta Kinte when the baby is lifted up before all the tribes.
