00:00 / 00:02

Once upon a time, in a dense jungle, there lived a great silverback gorilla named Kibo. Kibo was the leader of his group, known for his immense strength and formidable hunting skills. His roar could shake the trees and his powerful fists could shatter boulders. But despite his physical prowess, Kibo's true power lay not in his muscles, but in his heart and mind.

Kibo took care of all the young gorillas in his group, even those that were not his own. He made sure they were fed, safe, and had a chance to play and learn. He also helped the female gorillas with their daily tasks, such as gathering food and caring for their young.

Kibo understood that true power came from being respected, not feared. He knew that if he ruled with an iron fist, his power would be short-lived, and others would eventually challenge him. Instead, Kibo listened to the needs of his group and made decisions that benefited everyone, not just himself.

Thanks to his wisdom and kindness, Kibo's group prospered. They had plenty of food, were protected from danger, and lived in harmony with each other and the jungle.

The lesson of the fable is that true power comes from understanding, compassion, and balance, not just physical strength. By being kind and considerate, we can earn the respect and admiration of others and make the world a better place for all.
