The Born Free Child

or The Huru Child

[huru - Swahili word for 'free']

Were you or your friends born in a year that ends in a 3?

If so, then you are a Born Free child

(in Safaria years)

To be free:

- is to invent your own life

- live it confidently by your own rights

- speak your full truth

- & express yourself freely

Albert Einstein once said:

"For everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labour in freedom" & Nelson Mandela said:

"To be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others"

To be a Born Free child, is to be an inspiration.

"If all good things are wild and free,

what does that say of you and me?

Too old to be wild, too young to be free,

held down by responsibilities...

But maybe one day we'll wake up to find

being wild and free is not about time,

or how much has passed, or how old you are,

because wild and free both live in the heart."

- A poem by C. Jacobs
