Holding on to Hope

Odette left her girls in Rwanda in the care of her brother Innocent four years ago to follow her dreams toward a bright and shiney life in America. Promises were made. Risks were taken. There was trust and hope in that decision. But Odette was deceived and things didn't work out as she had planned. No one knew four years would stretch this relationship between a mother and her daughters. But they held on to hope.

As a human being, we should exercise to keep health. But everything has two sides. If our boby lake of exercising , we might be sick. However, If you over-exercised, our body can’t bear too much and will make your movement has no affect, increase the chance of injury as well. So we just need suitable exercise.

Thanks so much for this! I haven’t been this thrilled by a forum post for a long time! You’ve got it, whatever that means in topic. Well, you’re certainly somebody that has something to say that people need to hear. Keep up the great job.
