Everything was different about her.
While the other kids sat in restricted silence … she moved all over the place. Her spirit was contagious, smile addictive and energy captivating. I asked for a picture and while others shied away … she threw up this reverse peace sign.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” I asked
“Footballer” she responded.
As we left I thought to myself “How long does it take for a child like her to stop dreaming and for the Ajegunle reality to set in?”
I don’t know that there is a definite answer it all depends on circumstances and inner strength. If circumstances over power inner strength, we succumb to the reality around us. But if inner strength somehow overcomes circumstances then dreams can come true.
I hope she overcomes her circumstances … she has the inner strength but will it be enough?
