It is still the traditional greeting among east African Masai warriors, acknowledging the high value that the Masai always place on their children's well-being. Even warriors with no children of their own would always give the traditional answer, "All the children are well." Meaning, of course, that peace and safety prevail, and that the priorities of protecting the young and the powerless are in place. "All the children are well" means that life is good. It means that the daily struggles of adults for existence do not preclude proper caring for their young.
