Day 255

Everybody is a microcosm of their country – that’s what I learned today 🙂

It’s 6: 32 PM on day 255 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, started prepare my Kid of the Week feature for Sunday, feed myself a polony sandwich for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign –no luck –practice wheeling myself around – I could have made it over the small ramp that separates the kitchen and the dining room but I thought the wheelchair would topple over and fall and since I didn’t want to ruin my pretty face LOL I thought it would be better to do it when my parents were around – exercise for fifteen minutes, watch TV, feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watch some more TV, feed myself Pizza for dinner and brush my teeth once more.

Today while I was exercising I heard our housekeeper, Nandipha, singing and it almost brought tears to my eyes because I knew that nowhere else in the world would I find a woman singing while she was scrubbing the toilet when you witness something like that it really makes you think about the possibilities of your own life. Are you a fair reflection of your country?

Are we connecting on Twitter? If not, say hi at http://www.twitter.com/nisha360

if you’ve given to my cause or you can’t give now, please help me by sharing my cause with others. You can tweet about it like my friend Stan Faryna. This is the tweet he uses: @Nisha360 is a brave, smart young woman trying to make a better world for us all. Please help her do an amazing thing. http://bit.ly/hC7vOu

Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.

Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!
