Today, my colleague Abdullah shared a video with me – he’s a big fan of Australian television shows and often sends me quirky and funny things to brighten my day. 
All of us know of John Lennon’s Imagine. But this will take it to a different level altogether. After you watch this, I promise you will never not think of Emmanuel Kelly, when you hear the following lines:
“Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace”

Like one of the judges said, at the end of the video – a story like this makes all our trivial worries seem so pathetic. This boy’s courage moved me to tears, and by writing this I simply had to do my bit and remind myself that is so much good in this world. 

God bless women like Ms. Kelly. 

God bless Emmanuel and his brother. 

You may say he’s a dreamer, but he’s not the only one.
