Ubantu

Frederik_de_Klerk_with_Nelson_Mandela_-_World_Economic_Forum_Annual_Meeting_Davos_1992

When the flame of goodness
Is cheered on by a million bonds
Of diatomic oxygen
Of hearts and souls in perfection harmony
Imbued with the burning desire
To blaze vestal fires
For the bloom o
f spring.

“A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed, or treated as if they were less than who they are.” – Desmond Tutu
