Few things are more distressing than hearing a child say 'I can't..'.
"No no no you can ! There is nothing that is stopping you !", I feel like shaking her awake and telling her,"You can achieve whatever you set your mind to!".
But its too late.The child is adamant and drops her cause and walks away as I painfully realize that the society had gotten to her before me.
Its the tragedy of our times that there is so much at our doorsteps,ready to empower and enlighten us and yet there are so many who insist that the world is always dark. Every day so many young candles are put out, never to be kindled again, leaving behind nothing but hollow homes,where its always night. Night that steals their fates and enchain their spirits to dungeon walls until one day the darkness consumes them.
