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.


My Dream

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.

So, DREAM!
