    Young Tribesman Fights for Babies' Lives

    He recalls saying to himself, "'I'm here for some reason. This is bad. This is unacceptable. But these people are not bad.' I said, 'Okay, one day I'm going to fix this problem.'"

    Believing that he might one day change hundreds of years of tradition set Labuko on a collision course with his tribe.

    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow.
    Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.

    Wonderful human being. I wish all the success with his humanitarian venture. It will not be easy to change a cultural ritual for all the tribes but he has made an excellent start. Thank God we no longer adhere to the old wives tales of yesteryears. I can still remember some of them with no rhyme or reason to them.
