His name is Chaudhary Raffique Gujjar.
He's one of the adorable Indian tribal people featured on the popular YouTube channel, Tribal People Try, who are shown experiencing Western things...our food, our candy, our culture, our technology.
Mr. Gujjar has captured the hearts of many Americans with his sunny disposition and hilarious facial expressions when tasting our food (after the pop rocks episode, you can't blame him for looking worried!). That's why Americans Mary and Kayla regularly send over gifts for himself, his wife but mostly his children.
And every time, Mr. Gujjar gets all choked up. Being a big strong man he tries to hide it but in the Feb. 7th video he couldn't hold back the tears of joy and gratitude.
"Such loving people still exist in this world!" he said, mopping his eyes. (I'm always squirting tears everywhere too. Donations often get me crying!)
His words hit me hard because that's how we all feel.
Even though Mr. Gujjar's lives in a poor and isolated tribe, he too has gotten the message. His words betray how we all feel. A discouragement. A hopelessness. A fear that there's no good, kind, loving people left in this cockeyed world.
Governments worldwide have behaved so badly, staging false flags to start wars, teaching us to fear each other based on locality, ethnicity, religion, whatever.
It's all rubbish!
It's the governments that are the bad ones. Not the little people, the tribal people, the regular John and Jane Does of the world. The people like you and me and Mr. Gujjar.
Loving people still exist in this world everywhere and Patriots exist worldwide too. In fact, thanks to Donald Trump, the word "Patriot" has recently been redefined.
