NDUB Bulletin: January-March 2019


A Story: A man asked God to show him how to live his life. God took him to a forest and in the forest he saw a fox that was lame with a badly broken leg. Surely the fox will die of hunger. It cannot run. Then along came a tiger. In its mouth was meat which it placed in front of the fox and went away. Each day the tiger did the same. “Oh,” said the man, “I understand, I am to be like that poor lame fox. I will just sit and someone will take care of me”. He sat but no one came for three days and he was very hungry. “Oh, God,” cried the man. “I understood the lesson you showed me. I sat just like the poor lame fox to be taken care of”. God responded, “The lesson was not to be like the fox all your life. Rather be like the tiger.” We are learning the lesson in the right way at our University. We are all growing in our “courage to act”. The first question is not “what will I get”, but “what can I give”. President John Kennedy long ago said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but rather what you can do for your country”. This is what the motto of our University is all about – The competence to see and the courage to act. We want it to be more than just words, but the way we learn to think and act. This issue of our Bulletin again shows some of our striving in this direction. Yes, we all receive so much, but we also have a lot we can give. Be like that tiger. Continue reading…
