Khadejah Williams: From Homless to Harvard (Re: جواهر ابراهيم)

    Khadejah Willilams an African American girl born to a 14 your old mother in west coast area of USA.
    She attended 12 different schools in 12 years period because she and her mother were homeless and
    did not have one place to live…always moving form back and forth shelters to motels and to street…not sure when will
    be the next meal…she developed survival skills on how to find food “often form garbage bags”…because
    of the frequent moves she was always behind in school and had to study hard to catch up on curriculums…
    she was bullied because according to her “she is poor and different and read too much”...there were no
    other family to turn to…despite all that she managed to stay out of troubles…she never smoked, drink or did drugs.
    She was coping by reading a lot, anything readable could be food labels, newspapers, books and sometimes 4 books
    in one month she was reading a lot just to keep her mind away from her chaotic life.
    Khadijah graduated with high honors, fourth in her class. She was accepted to more than 20 universities but chose
    a full scholarship to Harvard.

    I watched a full episode in Oprah Show about her.
    .
    .
    When I read this story and watched it on TV, came to my mind those hundreds of children back home
    who are now at this moment living in a similar condition as Khadejah or even worse and beyond the imagination...
    no place to call home...some are living under rocks and in refugee camps with no hope for a better future...
    what if things could be different and they are able to go to school?? What if no more war, just peace, equality and justice??
    What if they don't have to think about whether or not they will find the next meal?? what if they just have to be kids and feel
    safe with no worries???? What if...what if...what if.................................................??? Ahhhhhhhhhhh ya balad
