The short video "When Elephants Fight" explains what is going on in the Congo. "Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals. Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others. An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him it is right. Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Everybody can be great ... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." ~ Martin Luther King

Another night watching "When Elephants Fight" with the #StandWithCongo community in Raleigh, North Carolina. There is a proverb that says: "When Elephants fight, the grass suffers".
