In my last post I wrote about my lack of inspiration. Well, I’ll tell ya – if anyone is looking for inspiration I have a suggestion for where it can be found. Watch “Building a Dream – Oprah’s Leadership Academy for Girls”. I watched it tonight and I am officially inspired.
I saw how these girls, who have lived through such tragedies, brave the threat of rape and any other numerous forms of violence to go to school. After watching that show I am filled with gratitude for our life and the opportunities available for our children. I’m motivated to do my best every day to home school my children. (I need to keep this video on standby for those inevitable days where I feel overwhelmed.) These girls have such resilience and determination. And hope. After all they’ve been through they still have hope.
I’m wrapped up in the story of the school and the girls. I wish the television special had been longer than the one hour. I wanted to see so much more of them and how they’re doing. I hope Oprah keeps us posted.
