Pride Comes Before A Fall

This had been the long awaited day when we were told to prepare our ourselves for the fund rising to promote poor people who had finished their national exams (KCSE).In reality everyone in the village was proud a peacock.This was to promote unity among people.But others refused thinking that they were lieying.As the adges goes pain of wating is nothing compared with pain of regreating.others say I wish I knew but it came after. Anyway there rising for those who had a mean grade of B+ many people in the community were surprised when they heard that it was a girl from kapsara secondary school were the one who had been rewarded.Surely hard work pays. This was an ambition to fulfill because a burning ambition that enables a man to fly into his or her dreamsand.Surely many people Benefited.
