A little food for thought today. I wanted to share this story I came across on Facebook because it really resonated with me and in my opinion exemplifies the #SupportaSista movement that we are all trying to build.
An anthropologist proposed a game to children of an African tribe. He put a basket of fruit near a tree and told the kids that the first one to reach the fruit would win them all. When he told them to run they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying the fruits.
When asked why they ran like that, as one could have taken all the fruit for oneself, they said, “Ubuntu, how can one of us be happy if all the others are sad?”
‘UBUNTU’ is a philosophy of African tribes that can be summed up as “I am because we are.”
