It’s been quite a while since anyone has brought me 2 tears and by that I don’t mean a useless boyfriend or a fake friend. You see yersterday I had the priviledge of meeting the most inspirational people I have ever met. They are not inspirational because the have got a lot of money, or drive flashy cars or are well educated. They inspired me because they literally have nothing and most of them never finished school, in fact they are homeless and they live in the streets of Hillbrow. I met a boy called Jody who has high hopes for his future and has been homeless since his mother passed away three years ago. Despite the fac that he is homeless and hasn’t been in touch with his siblings, he is still determined to further his education and he has been very active in trying to achieve this goal because he has contacted social workers to help him. Jody awakened something in me, he awakened the need and the desire to help someone in need in whatever way I can. His attitude towards life prompted me to use my voice and scream out loud until someone listens and and help in resolving the issues that leave a lot of youth vulnerable. I will tell u about my other inspiration next time. For now I leave you with this, ponder on it and let me know what you think we should do to help the troubled youth, after all they are our future.
