An anthropologist was winding up several months of research in a small village, the story is told. While waiting for a ride to the airport for his return flight home, he decided to pass the time by making up a game for some children. His idea was to create a race for a basket of fruit and candy that he placed near a tree. But when he gave the signal to run, no one made a dash for the finish line. Instead the children joined hands and ran together to the tree.
When asked why they chose to run as a group rather than each racing for the prize, a little girl spoke up and said: “How could one of us be happy when all of the others are sad?”
When did we forget to hold hands and run towards goal? When did we forget that success and goal can be achieved together? When did good of one person became important than the good of many?
Those children cared about each other, they wanted all to share the basket of fruit and candy. Let us learn to care about each other so that we all can share the success!
