How can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?

An anthropologist suggested a game to a group of kids in Africa. He placed a basket full of fruit by a tree and told the kids that who ever ran the fastest and got there first would win the basket of fruit.

When he said run, they all took each others’ hands and ran together. They then sat together and shared the fruits.

When the anthropologist asked the children why they had all run together, when one could have had all the fruit, they said: “UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?”

UBUNTU in the Xhosa culture means: “I Am Because We Are”
