Massai donate cattle in response to Sept 11th

No votes yet

Massai tribesmen in Kenya have only recently heard about the Sept 11th attacks on the US. To express sympathy they have given 14 cows, which they consider the most valued possession, to the people of the US. A US embassy near Tanzania received this ceremonial gift, and is not sure what to do with them.

Additional details are provided online by the BBC

I saw this on the news and it really touched me. These people have so little but they gave us, Americans, a generous gift of their most valued possesion. Their spirit honors us and we should be thankful and humbled.

Probably something like "Terrorists attacking America? Don't have a cow". But beeing foreign and all, they didn't quite understand then so they sended them 14 cows.

Greetings,
