A Young Girl Is Asked “What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?”. She Replies “An Astronaut”.

How can you expect me to believe in myself, and aim for the stars, if no one will provide me the rocket?

“Build your own damn rocket”

But a rocket needs fuel, and that’s far more difficult to learn how to make than the adventure vessel itself.

“So buy some”

There’s no way I can buy my own fuel; the sellers do not seem to accept hopes and dreams as a form of currency.

“Then ask for a loan”

Some help you mean? I did ask for help. I’m always asking for help. I guess no one has heard the message yet.

“Shout it a bit louder”

People don’t like to listen when you shout. And just one voice shouting isn’t loud enough. I need everyone shouting with me, peacefully fighting so that I can get to where I need to go.

So that I, too, can reach for the stars.
