I hear people talk about having dreams for the future.
But, what does that mean?
I dream there will be food tomorrow, that I won't have to dig in the dirt for scraps dropped during yesterday's meal.
I dream of having the energy to hold my head upright.
I dream that we can somehow get the medicine for this disease that is making my mother waste away.
I dream about having a school uniform so I can attend classes.
I dream of shoes so my feet won't get cut when I walk to get water.
Are those dreams for the future?
Is that what people mean?
The above is loosely based on some families that I love. I hope you get the picture of what thousands of children face every single day.
