I hope you ALL had the chance to watch Oprah's special last night. It was an hour-long program showing the process in which Oprah planned, built and opened her Dream Academy in South Africa. I bawled like a baby the entire hour and felt so inspired to make a goal for myself to reach out to others.

Oprah is an amazing example of unselfishness. I can only imagine how much money she is investing in these young girls' futures. And their futures are bright. They are brave, and poised, and intelligent young women. I admire them.

If you did not get to see it, I have it and will copy it for you onto VHS. I am showing it to my girls and I hope that it will help them appreciate the education they receive here in this blessed country. Oprah wishes for every student in this country to watch it.

I am not sure yet what I can do to make a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate, but it is my prayer that I will feel the desire to find a cause that I can rally behind, even if it is in a very small way.

Today's song of the day is the perfect choice and as I listen to the words, it really reminds me of these young girls who have been through so much, yet still have the drive and determination to be the future leaders of their country. Enjoy the "Greatest Love of All".
