Dream the impossible dream

Day 26:

The kids at the orphanage yesterday were so great to see. They never saw their image in a view finder of a camera before and wrestled to get to the camera while giggling like crazy. Which for us is light finally at the end of a long dark tunnel. Monday we check one more orphanage/school out and make the big decision. We’ll have to let the other school down. Both schools have much hope to win the lotto so to speak. One of the schools we checked was heavily funded from Norway and the building was as fancy as a American mansion. Handcarved woodwork every where, marble tile floors, etc… An ex female police officer from Norway went over to India to help with orphans and decided to start a orphanage/school. Luckily her parents are very gracious and provided lots of capital to build it. So that school was an easy decision to say no.

My sister Lori graciously sent us  The Impossible Dream  from the musical, The Man of La Mancha. and it is really awesome ( We are going to try to get the kids to paint the poem on one of the hallways):

Sing this loudly with bravado:

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
And to run where

The brave dare not go

To right the unwritable wrong
And to love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest

To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march,
March into hell
For that heavenly cause
And I know

If I’ll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart
Will lie peaceful and calm
When I’m laid to my rest
And the world will be
Better for this
That one man, scorned
And covered with scars,
Still strove with his last
Ounce of courage

To reach the unreachable,
The unreachable,
The unreachable star
And I’ll always dream
The impossible dream
Yes, and I’ll reach
The unreachable star
