“Try and you shall win,” he went on. “Because...
“By trying, you learn and you wizen-up!
“A thousand miles’ journey starts with a step.
Kudos Chepkorir-for courageously saying, “I CAN,”
And kudos for boldly walking a desolate path.

Your Shepherd and guide through ‘that den’ to its end.

As you fearlessly shake it up, a lill! And Hongera...
As you awaken all the slumbering Young Adults!”
“Amen!” I muttered, watching him walk away.
