To you, you, you and you and you with love

I feel like it’s my birthday. And Nicoles, and the Horac kids and each and all of your birthdays too. Together we raised enough money to pay the school fees for a year for the Horac-family in no time. An entire year, 365 days you guys, that is beyond amazing and it gives me goosebumps.They really are the hearts of the mountain these kids, perfect in their own ways and they deserve the world and I learn so much by hanging out with them.

I just wish that today, 2017, or 2073 in Nepali years, every child could go to school, that every kid had the right to actually be a kid and have a childhood, but the reality is so far away from that. I keep thinking about the sustainability goals and if they will make the change we all set our hopes for or if they are another castle in the air, another proof of that we are incapable of cleaning up the mess we have created for ourselves.

The people I meet here and the people I’m surrounded by make me really optimistic. Even if the reality appears cruel and Trump and whatever are like a satire that makes you choke on your laugh because it’s actually happening, the people, the everyday superheroes and the young to-be politicians like Tej and the kids give us every reason to keep our hopes up and to keep working for a better planet.

On saturday, we will attend WOW Kathmandu. Now what is that? I quote:

“WOW Kathmandu is a one day festival celebrating women and girls, and looking at the obstacles they face from achieving their potential. Around the world, individuals and communities are insisting on the simple proposition that women must have equal rights and asking 'why is gender equality taking so long?'”

I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS I AM BEYOND EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to dedicate this post to all those superheroes, the doctors, the social workers, the engineers, the scientists, the school kids, the nurses, the school kids, the environmentalists, the teachers, the mothers, the men, the women, boys and girls, the people that on micro and macro level makes this planet a better place, everyday.
