What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?

kids at the parkOften when you ask kids what they want to do when they grow up here, you’ll receive and “I don’t know” or some other response.  But, today, I loved the response I got from these two boys.  They both play soccer.  They’re about 13 years old.  One of the boys told me that he wanted to be an engineer and the other wants to be a policeman.  One even had a computer in his house.  I felt like I was back in the States for a second hearing that they play video games, watch Transporter 3, computer games and play sports.  Sometimes I find myself entrenched in the culture that I need a healthy reminder that kids in the States have a completely different life.  They have parents, shoes to wear, toys galore, events to attend, sports to play, new clothes, dreams for the future and so much more.  I love helping these kids see their potential and see that they can grow up to be something amazing.
