The anthropologist invited the children from the African tribe to play one game.
He placed a basket of fruit near the tree and announced, addressing the children:

"The one of you who reaches the tree first will be rewarded with all sweet fruits."

When he signaled to the children to start the race, they locked their hands tightly and ran together, and then they all sat together and enjoyed the delicious fruit.

The astonished anthropologist asked the children why they all ran together, because each of them could enjoy the fruit for himself.

To which the children replied: "Obonato". Is it possible for one to be happy if everyone else is sad? "Obonato" in their language means: "I exist because we exist."

Sadly, this is something that the most progressive countries around the World has forgotten to teach our children. It seems that today for the most part, "It's all about ME"
