An Investment Opportunity

Thanks again, to my dear friend, F, the retail-guru who sent along this article today. This is such an important concept for the people of Africa. They don't need to be the "charitable cause" for the world because they are such poor, underpriviliged people. Instead, they need recognition for their ancient land, filled with beautiful people, proud traditions and much to share with the rest of the world. The best way to recognize this is to make an investment in their country to help them to help themselves.

So is that what this somedays impossible job of parenting is all about... teaching them how to fish... I seem to have an obvious advantage to this and yet it still seems a big job.

Hmm...I hadn't thought about this from a parenting perspective. Interesting. I was mostly commenting on Macy's new partnership with the Rwandan widows mentionned in the article. But you may be on to something too.
