Obama's Speech:Let Children Get The Inspiration

What the heck of this was 'to allow /not to air the “Obamaspeech” to schools about? Denial of basic freedoms like those of listening and participation only plays reverse psychology. Someone needed schooling about this.

I'm returning to Kenya on 2 October with a group of people to help install libraries at 20 schools in the Kisii, Meru and other areas. Perhaps we could meet so I could explain the Schools and Communities Offering Projects that Empower program.

Dan owada, sometimes one gets too busy and confused. I have managed to edit my profile and write the right course but I still remain an actor for I have never assumed female roles in any casting.

Otherwise French seems to have got the better part of me for I survive on it.
Oriti osiepa. Keep in touch
