Where can I buy new parents?
Décision told the Sisters that, during his journey, he had met a man who played a guitar. Décision had begged the man to show him how to play it. Décision returned to the forest to cut a piece of wood that he could fashion into a guitar-like instrument. Now he tells his story by singing and playing the instrument. He sings: "Where can I find a market where parents are sold? But even if I could find one, I have no money and cannot afford to buy parents." Watch a clip of Décision performing.
|A Place to Belong|
|An impromptu concert by a traveling troubadour.|
About the time Décision arrived at their compound, the Sisters began working with U.S. engineers and local contractors to install Pelende's very first photovoltaic system. Pelende would soon have electric lights and purified water as well as a computer café -- all supplied by the power of the sun! Décision was attracted to the daily activity and sat down among the workers to sing and play his guitar. After long, hot days of fatigue and tension, the contractors welcomed him into their midst as they clapped and danced to his music. Décision smiled and sang. He had found a place to belong.
