BE PART OF HISTORY
BE THE CHANGE
In my 10 years as Secretary-General, I have been proud to add my voice … in calling on the world to pay more attention to children’s lives, needs, and rights.
Kofi A. Annan (Secretary-General of the United Nations)
Someone once said, “there can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.” If we must make any difference tomorrow, we must not stand indifferent about our children today. If we must have a viable future we must learn to put the child first. We must not abandon the future to fate, hoping for a miracle while wasting our resources trying to repair today we didn’t plan for, yesterday. It is so funny how we try to correct the past, wasting resources trying to apprehend those who looted and wasted our yesterday while we are ignoring tomorrow (the future) by wasting our today. If we must have a bountiful future harvest we must bountifully invest in the future, today. You can tell the future of any society from the way they treat their women and children.
Children are said to be the living messages we send to a time we will not see. According to John F. Kennedy “Children are the world’s most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.” This is the concern of SHE Foundation; to help educate and culture the ‘seed’ right from the womb by empowering the womb carrier – the woman.
Every day of our lives we write in the hearts of others and others write in our hearts. The question we should ask ourselves, therefore, is how we write in their hearts bearing in mind that the golden rule oversees us all.
Our life is actually an imitation of what is in our hearts. Everything in a man’s life happens twice; first in the mind (in thought-form) and then in reality. There is a script in the heart that our subconscious is trying to act out having accepted it as reality.
Emma Goldman did say, “If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.” For “no one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness, and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure,” were the words of LadyBird Johnson (former U.S. first lady).
This is the task of the SHE foundation; to unlock the treasure in the future. For we know that “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Securing the future of our children by offering true education from the lips of motherhood is the core goal of SHE Foundation. We also know that intelligence plus character is the goal of true education. True education of character, values, and morality only worthy mothers can teach.
“Be the change that you want to see in the world.” Today is your only opportunity to make that contribution to humanity. They say the price of greatness is responsibility. Join us today.
