“My neighbour and I have the same origins, same life-experience and a common destiny”.
The emphasis is on sameness and umoja (togetherness). We are together in this life and as a cooperative and community we are heading for the same end result. Let us then be brothers in our brotherhood. Being together, we can share what we have, our thoughts included. Encourage others to talk about themselves, and thus share the experiences of others. Inspire others to talk about themselves, where they are from, how their family is, how life is treating them etc. Establish a spirit of commonness between people. If one shares common experiences with another, a feeling of togetherness is created – Dr Broodryk (2006).
