UNTIL THE LION LEARNS TO WRITE EVERY STORY WILL GLORIFY THE HUNTER





By Vernalee

“Until the lion learns how to write every story will glorify the hunter” is an African Proverb which refers to the “unknown part of the struggle between the hunter and the lion because as we know a story is never complete until one hears from both sides.“ The one who has the dominant voice and/or authority is often heard and believed. The one of lesser prominence is often considered not credible or the loser. The hunter’s story may not be 100% accurate as most people tend to slant their story to favor them.

Where does this leave the lion? The lion has no voice.

Sounds familiar?

We know it all too well! The moral of the story lends itself to who will you believe.

Here's the test. Who is telling the truth when it’s one word against the other? Do people tend to believe the more influential person? Many do! Don’t sell the lesser person short.

Don't be fooled. Prominence, power, authority, and wealth are not necessarily synonyms for the word – truthful. It is not always how it looks! Besides, looks can be so deceiving. It may be wise to hear both sides, weight the facts, gather the evidence, and reach a probable conclusion.

It's the right thing to do; it's only fair!

This post is so powerful on so many levels. As a black woman who was taught that her mind & voice are the most powerful assets one can have, I still struggle to be heard. But thankfully, “I’m built Ford tough!” 💪🏾 thank for you posts Vernalee Sr. 😉
