the abolishion of poverty seems the key to happieness for everyone, and i suppose you can do that through education. it’s interesting to compare poor american kids to poor tanzanian kids. wildly outspoken to extremely introverted and innocent in so many ways. but both seem to have to grow up too fast.
took a bunch of pictures of my family today. funny how they want to pose and stuff. so cool. in front of their broken down truck, arms crossed, mostly straight faced. or acting things out, they love to act things out. pretending to open the door or stir the food. then they immeadiately want to see what the picture looked like and laugh and safi sana it.
an african faimly doesn’t show phyiscal affection. does that make them less healthy than one that does? i realize i would love to know more about the physhological or sociological data of african families, but it’s probably more important to raise them out of poverty first.
what does it mean to be happy? i just wonder how that can be achieved globally. is there a global standard of happiness? is it a universal? we all smile. the purpose of life is to be happy, to be able to look back on a life well lived. an examined life. let’s all get there.
