Djibouti is 4th level of Happiness

Ethiopia is 3rd level of Unhappiness or 7th level of Happiness

Sudan Same as Ethiopia

Kenya one level better than Ethiopia

Eritrea level of Unhappiness has no measure, beyond scale.

I do not like this ranking. 

Being happy while in dire condition is not good. Of course we are resilient people, but we must hate our condition and not to be happy .  Accepting misery and be happy about it is apathy.

Scandinavians, Australia and Canada are 1st level of Happiness (Happiest)

Central African republic and others darkest brown are 9th level of Happiness (Saddest)

On the one hand I agree with you that unless people are disgusted with current situation will not rise up to change it.

On the other hand this culture is very strong requirement for survival and continuity of the Somali. If one is fast reactive, makes a lot of mistakes and can loose faith, culture, language very easily.

I think so.

Being physically alive when death is all around you is survival. Everything is relative. A Somali in London may be unhappy with his car or house, but somebody in the Bay will be unhappy if Shabab affected his life.

They probably took the survey in a Hargaysa marfash markii dhawr mijood fadhi kaliya lagu dhameeyay.

They do have what is called 'iimaan.' Go check your Soomaali-Xabashi dictionary. It will help you understand why the following countries' are supposed to be on the top:

1. Mauritius
2. Libya
3. Algeria
4. Morocco
5. Nigeria
6. Somalia

What do the population of these countries have in common?

I think Cadaan said it best. While we should not be happy about the current conditions, faith in God and and accepting calamities is party of our IImaan.

Certainly we Somalis have IImaan or things could have been. No nation have went we wet through. Imagine nomadic and semi nomadic people people with no skills to survive , in war torn countries, yet  families are in tact, the major values and there.

Daniel A. Moi of Kenya said in 2002 after the Kenyans agitated, " If what hapened in Somalia happens here , you will die like a cattle.

This loser called Ducaale, says Somalis are dishonest about their love of their country, he denies the unity they are affirming, he denies their pronouncement of brotherhood, and now he is denying them the only thing is left for them ' Fath in Islam and IImaan"..

Inkaari kugu dhacday, imikana ummaddii ayuu iimaankii u diiday.

We Somalis lost everything, but we have our Immaan. Period

Does that mean you are happy though? Somalidu inay waalantay. 

The only time I will feel content and happy about my people is when they assume their leadership role in not only the region but also in the continent. 

I am crazy mad at the current situation. It is our own doing and I do not think having Iiman or not should be a reason to swipe the utter shamelessness that the Somali race are in today. 

I would suggest every Somali to use these proper words in order to come back to reality.

 

1. Change the phrase "Deeq Bixiyeesha" Donor Countries - Ilaahay ayaa deeq bixi. The correct phrase should be "Dalalka aan so Dawarsano"

2. Hayadaha  -   Correct: Sadaqaystayaasha Caalimiga ah

      Dear Mogadishu,
      I am saddened to learn another horror visited upon you the other day in the heart of your once beautiful downtown. I have a fond recollection of the area — Cinema Centrale, Croce Del Sud, Ufficio Governo, and the classic fashion shops. I understand it was going through renovations and witnessing a renewed sense of hope and revitalized spirits.
      I am sorry about what the merchants of death and destruction have brought to you. In their twisted, evil logic, they benefit from the atrocity and the violence they foist on you; their survival lies in keeping you in a perpetual cycle of death and destruction. I know your residents are a tough, resilient lot; they braved through so many calamities, but I do not think, for a minute, it is the West that is behind your misfortune. You are just a blip in the West's radar. The culprit is in the midst of the poor, honest, hardworking folks of yours. It is another Somali — a coward, a depraved soul, bereft of morals, hiding behind a variety of masks. He has poisoned your culture and ethics, destroyed your honor and dignity, brainwashed your children, and soiled your reputation. But let me tell you, he is on a borrowed time. Your people are becoming aware and exposed to the outside world, and your youth, ever more educated, restless, believing and demanding a better future.
      Dear Mogadishu, keep the faith and hope alive, your people will triumph soon and take good care of you!

      Hi all,
      I came across a website which talks about the benefits of giving gifts (it releases dopamine and endorphins in the brain which makes us feel good) on the Somali Gifts company website (http://somaligifts.co.uk) and wondered how many Somali's actually give gifts to each other and what these gifts are?
      I would love to get your thoughts on this topic so please give me a hand and fill out the Survey attached :)!
       
      Many thanks all!
