“…because they are strong.”

Sometimes the most penetrating words rise from fiction:

She told me about a group of people in Guinea who carry the sky on their heads.  They are the people of Creation.  Strong, tall, and mighty people who can bear anything.  Their Maker, she said, gives them the sky to carry because they are strong.  These people do not know who they are, but if you see a lot of trouble in your life, it is because you were chosen to carry part of the sky on your head.
