I recall as a small child (yes, even I was small!!) at school when we'd have to cross a street or went on a field trip, even with my family: we'd hold hands. Not because we were connecting emotionally or spiritually but for safety and basically, it's how we'd make sure our friends, classmates, siblings stayed together.
Working in Keyna, as it is in many countries, men would hold hands of friends to build or hold bonds of trust.
When was the last time you took a hold of a friends hand, or small group of friends and affirmed that bond, hoping to keep them all together ?
