I Exist Because We All Exist

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.”
