Zuriel wrote: “I Speak At The United Nations.
“So as a child, I saw many things on TV I did not understand. I still see many things I don’t understand, but I am learning a little how some things in world works. Not all of it is nice. Not all of it is good to learn about. Sometimes, I ask why cant someone just do something. I am in New York for the UN events, and have seen a lot already.
“Yesterday, I got to visit the UN, and spoke. I met some more world leaders, and saw a lot just walking past me. I was invited by some leaders to hear my ideas too. I still don’t understand a lot of things, but I am enjoying myself, and also learning a lot. I definitely need wisdom. Thank you LORD Jesus, for this Gift and the Favors. I am loving it :-)”
