Hope At Last

When my parents died in December, i was left orphaned and had no one to support me. I was to join my form four this year but school fees proved to be a back problem and obstacle to my education. I sat home for almost two months untill in March when the principal of the school i was studying in came at home and saked me to go to school and continue with my education. I was very happy to go back to school and promised him never to disapoint him.
