Happy Friday!  Those of you who follow our blog know our love affair with roses.  Last Saturday, we spotted this rose named for Bishop Desmond Tutu, a Nobel Prize recipient...  

 

 

Desmond Mpilo Tutu is a South African Anglican cleric and theologian, known for his work as an anti-apartheid and human rights activist.

 

He was the Bishop of Johannesburg from 1985 to 1986 and then the Archbishop of Cape Town from 1986 to 1996, in both cases being the first black African to hold the position.Wikipedia.

 

If you get a chance to hear him speak, listen!  I have chosen this quote, which characterizes his philosophy!

 

"Africans believe in something that is difficult to render in English. We call it ubuntu, botho. It means the essence of being human.

 

You know when it is there and when it is absent. It speaks about humaneness, gentleness, hospitality, putting yourself out on behalf of others, being vulnerable.

 

It embraces compassion and toughness. It recognizes that my humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together."

 

~ Desmond Tutu

 

Wishing everyone unbunto botho!

Happy Friday!

Hi Ron and Alexandra- when I think of roses, I think of my uncle who became interested in them when he retired. Is there a hint of pink in them?
