If you Fall you can Get Up!

Chicken or Champion?
A mother writes about her journey from Honduras.

We left at 3:40 a.m. from

My grandmother’s house.

I gave her a strong hug.

Also my sister.

I was leaving the place I love.

Never to return.


On the road to St. Peter

I became excited.

I had never left my country



The journey was long and difficult.

I learned it is true:

!If you fall

You can get up!

I learned:

Confront life like a chicken


Confront life like a champion.

You decide.

My Journey from There to Here
