in certain regions of South Africa

when someone does something wrong

he is taken to the center of the village

and surrounded by his tribe for two days

while they speak of all the good he has done

in his life

they believe each person is good

yet sometimes we make mistakes

which is really a cry for help and

we need to be reminded of our

good nature, all of the good

we have done

they unite in this ritual to encourage

the person to reconnect with his

good nature

the belief is that unity and affirmation

have more power to change behavior

than shame and punishment

this is known as Ubuntu

humanity towards others
