The kids have been training steadily at Tumaini despite exams, and lots of frustrations like teacher strikes and bad weather. Those of us hoping to keep them going have also been frustrated by some difficulties with race scheduling and struggles to find exciting end goals to work toward. However, the kids are powering through, and their attitude is amazing. Below are a few quotations for inspiration from some of our older runners. I cannot attribute their names to the quotes, as they were given as part of an anonymous survey we conducted to see how the running program was doing, but I can say all of these children are part of the committed running team between the ages of 15 and 20. As a runner, I can say these children are an inspiration:

“Beside education, I come to realize that running is part of improving my life since it is health to my body. I also enjoy when running.”

“Running has made me active in other games, even at school like football. I can be able to play for 90 minutes without getting tired. Running have also made my body very flexible.”

“The best time to me is when running in the morning. Since there is no sun and I am always energetic.”

“The best parts of the running program are the hardest runs that we usually run with the coach eg when there are small hills on flat areas or also many kilometers. “

“It like running because it is stimulative—you feel well and are in good mood. Even in school, I used to be very slow when working but now I am sick. I was dull but on running day I am always bright.”

This is a call to everyone to please step outside the right vs. left paradigm. While there are important issues worth debating within this paradigm, all of them will be moot if we do not focus on a much greater issue outside this paradigm. Thomas Jefferson warned of wealth concentrating to such an extent that it threatened the state. Nowadays the media has taught us all very well to ridicule anyone who talks of central banks usurping the power of government. Well now I suppose the media will have to laugh at themselves, as many outlets from Newsweek to the Financial Times of London are openly discussing the creation of a "bank of the world" that will control economic policies of every nation. I invite you to watch this video, which details how this is currently taking place. While it focuses on our current officials' cooperation with these plans, it steps out of the typical political paradigm by highlighting the cooperation of both parties. Please do not look to politicians to protect us. Only we can protect us. And our first step must be to reach out to police and military. Without their cooperation, the global elite won't have the muscle to exercise their will of oppression. Please share this oath-keepers blog with them.
