On the occasion of International Day of the Girl, Eunice, a 5th grader at the Kibera School for Girls in Kenya, reminds us to “DREAM,” and makes the point better than anybody could.
I have a dream, a dream that will never fail.
Every might king, was once a crying baby.
Every great tree, was a tiny seed.
And so is my dream.
This journey seems so long.
Yet, I will not waiver.
The path has stones all over but,
I will not give up.
Every day of my life is a page of my history.
Every step that I take is a move to my glorious destiny.
It’s not where I am, but where I’m going that matters.
Now listen, LISTEN CAREFULLY to the words of wisdom.
STOP watching your dreams go down the drain!
FIGHT! FIGHT! Fearlessly!
Like a wounded lion.
For it’s not about who you are, but how you see yourself.
