Mount Kenya

The Cracked Mirror

Wangari Maathai, Kenya

(Submitted by The Office of Wangari Maathai)

Mount Kenya used to be a holy mountain for my people, the Kikuyus. They believed that their God dwelled on the mountain and that everything good - the rains and clean drinking water - flowed from it. As long as they saw the clouds (the mountain is a very shy mountain, usually hiding behind clouds), they knew they would get rain.
