Day 174


A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tries to give back as much as possible and help people. A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really deeply cares. –

It’s 4: 15 PM on day 174 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Batura – deep fried bread – for breakfast while watching the  Cricket World Cup match: South Africa vs. England – we lost by 6 runs but it’s okay we’ll get’em next time 🙂 –   tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no luck –  feed myself rice and curry for lunch, tweet about my campaign some more – still no luck –  Chapati – an unleavened flatbread –  vegetable  curry for dinner – I am taking part in lent –    the period of 40 weekdays before Easter observed in some Christian churches as a period of prayer, penance, fasting, and self-denial. (Note: my community goes according to what is done in the Eastern churches so we will be fasting for 49 days and not 40) –   for the second consecutive year 🙂 – tweet about my campaign some more – I guess third time was the charm because @Dyan_Can (Diane) donated $10 –it was a pleasure meeting you Diane thank you for your donation 🙂 –and send two emails: the first to Brian’s mom, Lisa to see how she was doing (if you have no idea what I am talking about refer to End bullying for Brian) – Lisa and I have never meet in person but I know that if something ever happened to me I would want someone to do for my mom what I’m doing for Lisa – and the second was to the WordPress support team – my email notifications were being sent to two different email accounts and I asked them if they could help me fix it.

Yesterday I was watching The Showbiz Report – an entertainment magazine show – and heard that Angelina Jolie had stopped filming on her directorial debut to visit Afghanistan and meet refugees and I remember being so awestruck by the fact that she was so willing to drop everything in her life to go and help others with that said I would like this opportunity to applaud Angelina for all her philanthropic efforts – people may forget all the awards you’ve won but they’ll never forget all the good you’ve done you’re  officially my new hero. Is there an Angelina Jolie in you? 🙂
