"The marathon is easy. There are no lions."
Isaya, a 24 year old chief of the Maasai, led 5 warriors in the London Marathon yesterday to raise money for his village. He had never run a marathon before. He'd never been to England before. He recorded some of his thoughts in a journal.
This quotation and the journal reminds me of how much of my life I take for granted. Not that my life is necessarily any better than his, just very different. I assume life is the way that it is because it's always been that way, more or less. His journal is a good reminder just how indoctrinated a person can be to one's culture.
