“LOVE AND RISK
A hero may not be known at birth.
He is discovered in heroic deeds.
True love is for others.
Taking risk for the sake of others.
Francis Akachukwu Eze, a boy of 9
Clothed his love for his younger brother of 3
In a garment of bravery.
He couldnt stand it when his younger brother fell into a well.
“My brother must not die” He said.
Without waiting for the popular rapid response,
He entered the well
And made the rescue.
He brought him out on his back
I rejoice with you.
Praying that the seed of glory sown in you will keep on flowering. Amen.”
