What you may know is that my mother bought me my first underwear at thirteen (a milestone I celebrated by putting that thing on and pulling it up to make sure my peers noticed that social promotion-that is once she told me that the tag goes on the back). You also may be aware of how she came to visit me at Kangundo Hospital, where I was admitted suffering from Malaria, and then she removed her shoes and handed them to me-I was 17. What is astonishing is how much my mother, a sixth-grade dropout, influenced my life-a revelation I am going through since she came to visit my family early this month. It is our first time to see her in eleven years.
We had the pleasure of being in the audience, listening to the 6th, 7th and 8th grade bands perform. Our granddaughter played a clarinet duet and Im proud to say they sounded quite good. There were soloists, too, who did well. Put the entire band together, there were some missed notes, a reasonable amount of squeaks, air-and-no-notes, and shrill pitches along with missed beats. This is the first year these children have played their musical instruments, so you would expect the learning curve to still be going on. All-in-all, though, they performed much better than youd expect; you could see the determination on their faces, and they should be extremely proud of where theyve come in one year.
