English 101

     The song Wavin' Flag matters to me because it talks about the hardships people are going through on the day-to-day basis for example having to fight in order to eat, let alone survive in the war-torn area. This song is similar to the article Alexie, it talks about wanting to be free and knowing that, that day will come and people will be safe again. In Alexie underprivileged kids had to face hardships of the everyday life just like K'naan explained in Wavin Flag. Their all fighting for one thing and that's freedom, so that they can live the way they want to and not be dictated. As you get older and start to take on life it makes you stronger as a person no matter what it will throw at you, your going to find a way to push through it.
     Sometimes you just have to wait for that one day to come and you will have your chance at being able to move on and be that person you want to be. Another reason it matters to me because it shows that no matter how hard you fight that there will always be light at the end of the tunnel for you to show it's your time. People are going to try and tell you that you should do this or that, but it doesn't matter what they say as long as your happy and doing what you love in order to achieve that one goal you have set for yourself. Eventually the harder you keep working the more likely that goal of yours is going to come true no matter what happens in life.
