My dream is to be happy. I am happy when I see people smile. I see more smiles around me when I’m being the best version of myself.
Since Adam and Eve were created, people have been fighting for happiness. Even in the darkest times, we all live hoping that someday, we will be happier. I want to chase my dream without anything stopping me. I want to go anywhere and call it home. I want to keep having hope that tomorrow will be a better day.
This is the reason I came to Hebron Academy.
From over 20 countries, we all make Hebron our home.
We care for each other, and suddenly the room feels warmer.
We give each other a hug whenever we need some.
We ask them to come with us, whenever someone is lost.
We hear the laughter, and it makes the whole community smile.
We live the day, and we can say it was a wonderful day when we fall asleep at night.
If 300 people and a few animals can share happiness and home, why can’t 8 billion people and 8 million creatures share happiness and earth?
I have a dream, too, that everyone has a place to call home.
I have a dream, too, that everyone and everything is fulfilled with love.
I have a dream, too, that every animal, plant, and planet will share happiness.
I have a dream, too, that nobody will be left alone in the corner of the world.
I have a dream, too, that the world will be filled with laughter.
I have a dream, too, that every person and every animal can feel proud of their life when they walk to the stars.
This is my dream.
