CCI Meets Archbishop Desmond Tutu

MEXICO – December 17, 2010 - Computer Consultants International
(CCI)’s Principal met with Archbishop Desmond Tutu onboard the University of Virginia’s Semester at Sea Enrichment Voyage. The Archbishop was the Keynote Speaker for the December cruise throughout Central America. Starting at 9:30am the Reverend Tutu addressed the attendees, including CCI’s Principal.

The Reverend opened with a series of stories: being asked by a school child if he was present when her school was founded 400 years earlier, and an allegory about the Garden of Eden. Discussing that Adam first lived alone, without bloodshed, surrounded by vegetarians, received the world’s first anesthetics when Eve was created from his rib. The Archbishop related this to truths of humans relating to ourselves, how we are made to be together, interdependent, and how our gifts are complimentary and we come into the world only as a result of cooperation between 2 people.

“I remember in particular how he talked about his wife and said ‘I need you to be you so that I can be me.’” Said Arshi Tayyab, CCI’s President. “and how her birthday card to him said, ‘We have a beautiful and unique relationship, I am beautiful and you are certainly unique.’ The Archbishop is a great story teller.” Ms. Tayyab noted that he had great wisdom to impart on the Ethics of Families, how families do not share resources based on performance—babies don’t perform at all, for example. He also talked about world politics, Israel, and as a Christian how Christianity has had the most wars yet calls Muslims terrorists. “I greatly enjoyed the speech and look forward to spending time with him on the ship,” said Tayyab.
