Last week I wrote a bit about the RESCUE that was happening in 100 cities. Well I went and we were rescued. It was awesome. We started a revolution to save abducted children. It was good. That was 6 days ago
And 6 days later every city was rescued. Well almost!
Chicago waited and they waited and they moved, and then waited some more, then moved again, then waited, then moved once more and waited. For 6 days hundreds of people waited to be rescued. Reinforcements came. Thousands of emails to Oprah Winfrey pleading to be rescued, as many if not more tweets to get her to come out.
It took 6 days but finally the peoples voice was heard and today on her Friday LIVE broadcast she will rescue Chicago. Amazing. We thought she didn’t hear but she did. In fact there were times when many thought she was ignoring us. It seemed that way. But you know what?
Her timing could not have been more perfect.
The one day that the show goes LIVE and she decides to answer. She could have answered 6 days ago but her voice will be clearer now than it would have been then. In other words the best possible scenario is what is going on now! If she had answered on Saturday then all the media wouldnt have been out to see what the heck all these people were doing hanging around Chicago for nearly a week.
What’s happening to the Child Soldiers will be heard by thousands of more people than if it happened earlier. All it required was a little bit of patience. A bit of hope. A belief that something was around the corner.
And for all the people waiting their hope was rewarded. Their belief was shown to be true. That’s awesome to me. Sometimes we need to have hope. We want something to happen now. But we don’t realise that it might not be the best if it happens now. If it happens now, we might miss out on something that is going to happen then. What if we just stick it out. What if we stopped now just because we don’t see results now? That would be a tragedy
I’m glad the kids in Chicago didn’t stop. I’m glad they kept going. They are inspiring to me. I want to be like them. I want to not give up even if all the evidence says I should. But the evidence isn’t all their is. It may be all we see sometimes, but it is definatley not all there is.
That’s a good enough reason to keep going.
Well done Chicago!
Well done Oprah!
