I am because, we are ! A very nice story..

An Anthropologist proposed one game to the kids of African tribal children.

He placed a basket of fruits near a tree. And made them stand 100 metres away. He announced that whoever reaches first would get all the fruits in the basket.

When he said ready steady go..

Do you know what these small children did?

They all caught each others' hands and ran towards the tree together, divided the fruits among them and ate the fruits and enjoyed it.

When the Anthropologist asked them why you did so? They said 'Ubuntu'

Which meant: 'How can one be happy when all the others are sad?'

Ubuntu in their language means: 'I am because, we are!'

Let's all carry this attitude and spread happiness..!

What's funny is we put leaders where they are and then it seems almost impossible to get them off their high horse.

One thing is for sure, they don't want to share the basket nor what's in it.

Joomla! is an open source CMS (web), also derived from African word. Jumla (Swahili) mean "All Together".

That's really encouraging for the human species. Seems they don't make humans like that nowadays when you hear of all the evil going around the world, it's good to read things like that. One could learn a lot from cultures from other countries and would be amazingly surprised. If it were in most parts of US or Canada, on "GO!" someone would pull out a gun, shoot all other contestants and run for the fruit basket. When all you hear lately is school shooting and mean kids, bad parents, selfish people, greed, etc, it's good to know that there are good people left. May God bless those people.

I wish I could "LIKE" this post thousands of times. Politicians and banks are thieving crooks. Their number goal is money at all costs and not serve the interest of people. People have to vote for someone (dare I say SOMETHING) as there is not much choice, they are all sh*ts !! So you have to vote for the lesser of the sh*ts :D

Well with the US at least the presidents have LIMITED terms then they have to get off the horse !
In my country they can run for unlimited terms :P So you are stuck with the mother******* for what seems to be like an eternity.
