I Really Do Exist by Nancy Njoki
Thank you, Solveig, for your donation to Namelok Junior Academy in Kisamis, Kenya. It is the best birthday gift I could ask for! We are raising money to finish the classroom windows with a durable plastic covering to keep out the wind and rain. 100% of your contribution will go toward this project.
Your poem made me catch my breath. I read it to my husband and we both just looked at each other in silence. I hope you realize the power of your words. Anyone can shout, but sound only goes so far. Your writing can travel the world. Your writing voice is important and deserves to be heard.
Keep writing from your heart, even if that means tackling what hurts. All truths, no matter how deadly, shed light.
I’m really proud of you and will share “I Really Do Exist” everywhere I can.
