How the Power of a Tribe Can Change the World
A tribe of people formed on Facebook just last week wanting to make vital organs more accessible to desperate people in need of a transplant. In the first twenty-four hours more than five thousand people signed up as organ donors. Tribal passion runs deep. Tribes have glue, because they hold a shared belief. Their common faith fills them with purpose and a sense of oneness.
Like a college's football team taking the field as clear underdogs, they become one. They find a strength deep within. They play with passion that no individual will find on his or her own, and they win. And that's the entire message of Barefoot Tribe by Palmer Chinchen: when people come together and work in unison, they have the strength to transform entire societies. This is the power of the tribe.
