““We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, I would like to begin with a quote from Dr. King. Vision is an integral part of leadership and Dr. King was a visionary who could see the ramifications of societal issues before they’d even manifested– his sacrifice became our victory.
I think this final concert was a great victory for Love and Care, Heavenly Home, and for me as well! We all worked very hard to produce a great performance and I want to show off my wonderful students’ hard work and dedication! Below is a photo summary of Heavenly Home Orphanage children performing Fungah Alafia from Ghana and Love & Care students performing Lamban from Senegal, cooking mafe (Senegalese peanut butter stew), and performing traditional Karen songs and drama, and modeling in their fashion show!
I think it’s safe to say we all learned a great deal from one another and I’m going to miss you all dearly! Big shout out to Thant Zin, Lily, Jose, Lenka, Mau Thaut Pa, Say Mai, Steven, Htet Naing Oo, and Saleck for all of your help and support! To all my students, LOVE Y’ALL ❤
