Hello stars out there!
Yes, you are stars, shining brightly for a brighter Nigeria. Let it be in you, and always walk tall knowing that you are the future the world is waiting for. Wondering how? You are the future leaders and all you are seeing and hearing: corruption, Boko Haram, herdsmen, Avengers or militants today will soon fade away but people that prepare and protect themselves now will rule tomorrow. Those ruling today started yesterday with hard work and determination to be the stars they are. You, too can start today, work hard at your studies as you know that there is no chance for failures at the top.
Now that almost all students are through with promotional examinations, determine to begin to build yourselves, place the mirror of the future in front of you everyday which will continuously remind you of what you wish for yourselves. This long vacation is more than enough for you to begin to create the world you wish to live. I am waiting for you at the top. Thanks for staying with your darling Kiddies column every Sunday.
It was a hot summer day. A crow was very thirsty. He flew here and there in search of water. He could not find the water. He sat on a branch of a tree. There was a pitcher under the tree. There was some water in the pitcher. He was very happy to see the pitcher. He tried to drink the water but the level of water was low. His beak could not reach the water in the pitcher. He thought of a plan. He dropped some pebbles in the pitcher, one by one. The level of water rose up. The crow drank the water and flew away.
Moral: Do not see impossibility in your dream. If you see it and you want it, you can have it.
