You can see it in my eyes and you can see it in my soul. I know now why I have come here and I know now why a part of me will never leave. My love for this country is great, I am a part of this journey, my dreams for our future are as high as our sky and my roots firmly planted in our soil. Countries don’t make countries great, it’s people do. And I believe in our people. ????????
