    Be Peace For Peace: The Ubuntu Connection

    Today I was asked to write a few words about Ubuntu and thisis what I shared:


    Be Peace For Peace:  The application of Ubuntu in both Being and Doing Peace:

    Ubuntu.  The gift that Africa will give the world, according to Nelson Mandela.  I could not agree more.  Ubuntu is essentially a humanistic philosophy that incorporates many tenets but perhaps the most well known is interconnectedness.  Recognizing that we are all each other’s brothers and sisters and that we should treat each accordingly with dignity and respect is a major component of Ubuntu.  The need for Ubuntu is everywhere!  The need is with and for everyone!  The need is now!  The impact is huge.  One can start with self and the ripple effects can be felt many connections later.  Treating everyone, including oneself, with dignity, respect, compassion, and recognizing their humanness are vitally important to employing Ubuntu.  I am who I am because of who we all are.  Peace.  Peace Leadership. Namaste.

     Ubuntu is the cornerstone of Peace leadership, as I am creating and working with it.
