Sometimes it can feel too much to be extraordinary on top of everything else that we need to do and be! But this beautiful story about humility, kindness and sharing shows us that it really doesn’t take very much at all.
An anthropologist proposed a game to some children from an African tribe.
He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first won the sweet fruits.
When he told them to run they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said:
UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?”
If these children can find it in themselves to be extraordinary in their consideration of each other then there’s hope for the rest of us!
