Love is a Verb

12 July 2009 One Comment

The Ebo tribe in Nigeria frowns upon praising relatives, friends and acquaintances.  Showering someone with verbal sentiments of love, appreciation, respect, etc. occurs less frequently than in many other cultures.  It is thought that such praise will “go to  one’s head.”  Rather, caring is evidenced by action.  It is in the sometimes dull, but constant, loyal and dedicated presence and support of one for another that love is evidenced.  To the Ebo tribe in Nigeria, LOVE IS A VERB.
