The Continent of Africa!

 If you turn on the TV or pick up a newspaper, it is not difficult to find a depressing story originating from
the African Continent. The ever-disheartening media reports are likely to capture various all-too-cliché
African warlords, poverty, starvation, corruption, HIV/AIDS, resource wars, etc. I am not saying these
don’t exist, because they do – and after working in Uganda for nearly a year and a half, I have come
face to face with many of these challenges. If we are not careful, it is far too easy to get sucked into the
darkness of it all – the heaviness – the weight… and to allow these things to close us off and harden our
hearts.

As I lay in Savasana at AYP’s Saturday class, it struck me – LIGHT. I couldn’t pinpoint it at first. There
was something different about these people and this space. So many words just didn’t fully encapsulate
it – inspiring, beautiful, powerful, energetic, open…

LIGHT. That is it. The light present is what makes AYP so beautiful and unique. In spite of all the
heartache that happens on this continent …. In Kenya as a whole… and in the city of Nairobi, the AYP
community has chosen to shine. They have chosen to defy the darkness and weight… and in the face of
separation, to unite… in the face of conflict, to build peace…. In the face of seeming impossibilities, to
make things possible. The teachers, staff, and practitioners radiate and shine a light that illuminates and
spreads all around them.

The continent of Africa doesn’t need billions more in governmental aid money – the last 5 decades have
yielded little from that approach. What is needed is more of this light. More of this joy. More of this
peace.

One of the centers we reach out to.-Huruma Nairobi

I am so honored at having been able to spend time with the people at AYP and to be able to say that I
am little part of that community that is growing… spreading… and shining.

Поэтому, если после чип тюнинга появились посторонние звуки,
рывки или что-то подобное – стоит
НЕЗАМЕДЛИТЕЛЬНО обратиться в компанию, где вам производили тюнинг.
