UBUNTU: A South African term meaning "I am because you are." It celebrates the connectedness of all of humanity. The speaker in this video (who came to California to do a TED Talk the very day that Mandela's death was announced) talks about how UBUNTU also transcends the animal kingdom.
I love this talk. It's only 15 minutes. I think I'm going to keep a link on my laptop so I can listen whenever I need a shot of inspiration.
