Ubuntu - I am because you are
The word ubuntu is part of the Zulu phrase "Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu", which literally means that a person is a person through the connection with other people. The word has its roots in African philosophy, where the idea of the community as one of the building blocks of society is prominent.
Nelson Mandela has explained the word like this: "In the past, when we were young, when a traveler stopped at a village, he did not have to ask for food or water: once he stopped, the people give him what he needs. It is one aspect of Ubuntu . [...] The question today is; what will we do to enable society to improve? If we can do something for someone else, we have done something important that will be appreciated." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HED4h00xPPA&t=95s
The expression: "I am because you are" could not be truer for a crafter! Welcome to my blog!
