That was super nice of them.

And now I’m mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that’s really f*cking nice and nobody mentioned it at all.

American media tends to disregard that anyone donates to the US. And then Amurricans complain about money going abroad because “nobody helped the US in our disasters.”

>.>

Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O

It isn’t just a matter of how much a cow costs, its a matter of considering that Masai life is based around their cattle. Its their wealth, their food, and a significant part of their religion. Here’s a quote from Wikipedia:

Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor.[37] A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.[38]

So its not just “they gave us 14 cows”, its that they gave us something that is very important and significant to them, it is more than just a kind gesture that definitely deserves to be known and its a genuine shame that more people don’t know about it.

Honestly they shouldn’t have

Thanks for the reminder that there are still good people around. ^_^

In April 2014, an estimated 90,000 South Sudanese refugees had settled in Ethiopia’s Gambella region. MSF is providing assistance in four different locations. Above, children being treated for malnutrition sit with their mothers and relatives  at the MSF hospital in Lietchuor camp . The refuge camp currently holds over 40,000 people who have fled the violence in South Sudan. Mortality rates among children under five remain above emergency levels.

It’s such a hippie thing to say but so true. ^_^ When the forests are lush and the seas thriving, you know the earth is a healthy happy mama.

Sometimes it doesn’t have to be a choice between progress and the environment. It can be both. We just have to balance & choose solutions that’ll have minimal or no impact.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."

Though best known for overcoming apartheid, Nelson Mandela also worked to enshrine gender equality in South Africa’s constitution and advocated for women’s rights worldwide.

Thank you, Mr. Mandela, for wanting freedom, peace and a bright future for everyone, equally.
