Here's another. 'If money was an animal, what animal would it be?' Example answer - 'A dog. If trained well it can be a good friend. If not controlled it can be dangerous.' Who has another answer?

Paul Moclair I nominate Menno Aflatoun to get the ball rolling.

Menno Aflatoun A horse, because it can take people anywhere. Nominating Hassan Mahtat

Hassan Mahtat A spider because it always ties things together. Rediet Abiy

Rediet Abiy A Bee, because the results of teaching are usually sweet….however, if it is not performed the ‘right’ way, it may sting and cause some damage. Adwoa Sey

Adwoa Sey An eagle. The eagle represents freedom and teaching gives freedom to all. A person who has never been taught cannot think for himself. He is forced to blindly accept the dictates of others as he lacks the ability to judge right from wrong. When one is taught, one is able to make this distinction, to realize the reasons behind his forced servility and to stand up and demand redress. This frees him from the shackles of servility and makes him a free individual. I nominate Patricia Fafa Formadi

IBRAHIMA BA A dog as always useful, helpful, and ready to protect children

Aflatoun in person Asunción, Trainer of Trainers in action.
