On shooting an elephant. George Orwell [Story]

My younger self had read Orwell's "On Shooting an Elephant" (when maybe 11 or 12?)- and it did not make much of an impression at the time. Re-read the story last night. Wow, is all I could muster.  
As an aside, "The Literature Network" has some great stuff, which I hope remains in the public domain.
