We live in a world where political rhetoric and strong opinions often-time take the social media spotlight. Of course, I too, am guilty of perpetuating this exact thing from time to time.

However, sometimes we just need to take a step back, take a break, and allow ourselves to converge on something we can all agree on.

What you're about to see is a beautiful young hippo that was born prematurely at the Cincinnati Zoo. The first video is of the calf drinking from a baby bottle, the second is her trying the kiddie swimming pool for the first time. Enjoy this footage, it's really really a special thing..

As if that wasn't cute enough, take a look at this beauty trying the kiddie pool for the first time!
