HAPPY MOMENT: I used to play kickball with a team of really awesome people but I stopped playing after three seasons for various reasons. They decided to play dodgeball (in addition to kickball) after I quit, and they needed an extra player last night, so I went and played with them. It felt so awesome to play dodgeball again, something which I have not done since I was probably 10 years old. The giddy joy of playing a childish game really made me happy.
MEANINGFUL SONG: “Time of my Life” by David Cook – Such a good message in this song and one that I really identify with at this moment in time. It’s time for me to make a difference in this life rather than sit back and watch everyone else!
INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE: “Enjoy yourself. It’s later than you think.” (Chinese Proverb)
They are trying to decrease the dependency on kerosene generators in Africa, which are expensive and can quite often be dangerous. If Africa can figure out ways to be more sustainable, isn’t it up to us in the more developed world to figure it out as well? Hopefully this solar energy intiative will provide light to those who do not already have it.
