Playing in the Light of the Moon

“We must strive to be like the moon. ‘ An old man in Kabati repeated this sentence often…the adage served to remind people to always be on their best behavior and to be good to others. He said that people complain when there is too much sun and it gets unbearably hot, and also when it rains too much or when it is cold. But, no one grumbles when the moon shines. Everyone becomes happy and appreciates the moon in their own special way. Children watch their shadows and play in its light, people gather at the square to tell stories and dance through the night. These are some of the reasons why we should want to be like the moon.” – Ismael Beah, author, A Long Way Gone

The moon lit up the evening sky and gave us more time to play.
