African Parable: The Race At Sunrise


Intended for reverence and to enhance one of the most insightful African Parables -The Race At Sunrise,  pictures of Gazelles which are captured from Ethiopia’s wildlife Sanctuaries (Netch Sar and Shalla-Abiata National Parks),  plus an amazing work of art: a Lion mosaic, which glazed one of Ethiopia’s resort in Hawassa are presented here … Be Inspired!


Every morning in Africa,

a gazelle wakes up.

It knows that it must run

faster than the fastest lion,

or it will be killed.

Every morning a lion wakes up.

It knows that it must outrun

the slowest gazelle,

or it will starve to death.

It doesn’t matter whether

you are a lion or a gazelle;

when the sun comes up,

you had better be running.
