Thoughts for today, #186 … “UBUNTU”!!


Ubuntu

An anthropologist thought he would test these African children

He placed a bowl of fruit underneath a tree and told them that the first one to reach the tree could have the fruit. When he told the children to run, they all took each others’ hands and ran together. They all enjoyed the fruit together.

This is the African concept of Ubuntu.

In my opinion, it is also why Africa is preyed upon by the vultures untamed and let loose by other cultures.

When asked why they didn’t run the course alone, they answered, UBUNTU!

How can we be happy when others are sad?

UBUNTU in Xhosa is roughly translated, “

I am because we are.”

I found this on an African website and wanted to share it with you. Now, if we could just get rid of those vultures.

About Cynthia McKinney

In the fight against bigotry, we stand together, and we must. In the fight against injustice, we stand together, and we must. In the fight against intimidation, we stand together, and we must. After all, a government that launches wars to steal another person’s birthright will do anything to all of us.”

Cynthia McKinney has made a career of speaking her mind and challenging authority. She began on day one of her political life and hasn’t looked back.

With her opinions, actions, and even her sense of style, McKinney has inspired both admiration and controversy.

ST. PATRICK’S DAY

Every year on March 17, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patrick’s Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”’
