Born to Fly

Exploring the World Through Soccer and Music


Walk on through the wind.
Walk on through the rain.
Though your dreams be tossed and blown,
Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart.
And you'll never walk alone.

I find it as a great message to pass to the kids. Keep walking, no matter what happens; and find the strength to keep going from the love you have from your parents and friends. I think, it can't get any better than that! This lyrics are from "You'll never walk alone", the ultimate soccer anthem of the Liverpool soccer team.



Soccer is one of the most exciting and probably the most popular sports. Since World Cup is coming summer 2014, it is also an excellent opportunity to discover different cultures of the world and to get proud of who you are and of your country.



The pressure's on... You feel it.
But you've got it all... Believe it.
When you fall, get up.
"Listen to your God," this is our motto.
Your time to shine. Don't wait in line.
You can sing this inspirational song with Shakira and great African rhythms while learning about African cultures. This is "Waka Waka", the official World Cup 2010 song.



Who doesn't enjoy the Brazilian rhythms? Samba, and its flow of energy and positivity, for sure can help to feel the culture of Brazil. Coca-Cola, in its 2014 World Cup campaign song, provides this lyrics for us:
Run like you born to fly.
Live like you never die.
Dare what you dare to dream
And everything in between.
We are drawn by the rythms
that beat through our heart.
When we all come together,
we are seven billion stars. The world is ours.



I can't wait to travel through the countries and explore the cultures of the world with Multicultural Kids Blogs. They are announcing a new series, "World Cup for Kids", which "will focus on the 2014 World Cup in Brazil as a way to teach kids about the world and global cooperation".
