HAMILTON: You have got to see and hear these children!

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — I told him that his job was not to get an education and to come to America to live. “Your job,” I said, “is to get an education and to build the kind of Senegal that will make Americans want to come here to live!”

Ironically, one of the ambitions that the sponsor of this group wants the children to do is to expose themselves to the world, so that they can return to their country and be leaders there. That, ironically, is also a local goal of Leadership Niagara, an organization into which the Gazette has sponsored me. Here, we are to become better leaders locally.

But, as the children’s website says, “The primary goal of the choir is to raise awareness of the need of destitute and orphaned children in Africa and to raise funds for continued development and support of the African Children’s Choir Programs. The choir’s international educational endeavor provides unique training for the children. Once Choir members have completed a concert tour, they will return to their homelands with the tools necessary for bettering their future.”

I implore you to be a part of this wonderful event. You may not have traveled the world; but, as it is in Niagara Falls, the world has once again come to you. Now be a part of it and bring your parents and children to 1334 Calumet Ave. at 6 p.m. for entertainment and education. It’ll be worth your while, you can help someone, and because of your actions, like me, after I saw my first event as such in Croatia, Yugoslavia, you will be talking about it for years to come.
