“I am because we are.”  

A scientist tried an experiment with the Xhosa people in which he placed a basket of fruit under a tree.

 

 Then he told the children gathered that they would have a race and the first child to the tree could have the basket of fruit.

 

When ready to start, all the children held hands and ran to the tree together.

 

He asked them why they did not race against each other.

 

They replied “Ubuntu.”

 

Who’s hand are you taking today that will get you both to the tree at the same time?

 

This is who you are.
