The tears of a child

When I was in third class, I went with my school on an excursion to the park.

While I was walking in the park trying to find my friends, I met a girl who was crying. She was sitting on a bench. I sat on the bench and asked her why she was crying. She answered me that her mum had told her that she would come to the park to see her, but she hadn’t come. I told her that she mustn’t cry because she could be stuck in traffic or she could have a job to do, but she hadn’t forgotten her. I also gavae her my dolls adn we played together. When her mum came, she thanked me for helping her.

From this story, I learned that I must be kind to others and help them when they have difficulties.

A stray dog finds a friend and a bite to eat

Once we had a sit-in at our school and I suddenly saw a stray dog. It was so cute and small, it surprised me. I got out of the school and petted him (it was male).

BUt he trusted me and follwed me everything! My friends were scared of him so I had to tell him to go away, but he didn’t. I LOVE animals.

So I took him with me to my house. There was my dog too. They met each other and played for 15 minutes. Then I gave him water and spicy food.

I loved him, but I couldn’t keep him. Also, my dog was jealous of him. So I took him back to my school. My teacher said she wanted to keep him and she would buy some food for him. I said, “Don’t worry, I did it for him.” Then she laughed, hugged and kissed me. She said, “Thank you very much!” I said, “It is my obligation.”

I felt so happy and satisfied with what I did.

A young one helps the elderly

One day, when I was a child, I was going home after my school day. It was Wednesday and the shops were all opened. On the road there was a terrible traffic jam!!!

My mum told me to go to the bakery and buy some bread. I was opposite the baker and I had to cross the road. While I was waiting, an elderly woman begged me to help her cross the road because she had broken her leg and she couldn’t walk very well.

The traffic light turned green and I took the elderly woman by her arm to cross the road together. She thanked me and continued on her way.

That day, I felt very happy because I had helped an elderly woman with a broken leg to cross the road. And, also, with this good deed I felt kind.

Sharing helps another student

A month ago, at school, my best friend Nical, had forgotten her book for her Religious Education class. Because she was forgetting it every time she had a lesson, I decided to give my book to her, because if I hadn’t given it to her she would have to take an absence. As the time went by, our teacher saw that I didn’t have a book. So she sent me out of the class and she told me to go to the head teacher’s office. When I had been to the head teacher’s office she was’t there, so I went back. After that I went again to the class and the teacher told me to come inside and I won’t get an absence because I’m a very good and responsible girl.

Doing the right thing

I have done a lot of good things. I help poor people, give money to poor people, help grandmothers to cross the street. But the best was a day when I was walking. Next to me were two people on a motorbike, the second person hold a bag. The bag fell down and when I went to get the bag, I looked inside and there was a lot of money in it. e bag and I went to pick up the bag. I looked in it and I saw a lot of money. I took it to my house and showd it to my mother. She told me to take it to the police. I went to the police and one policeman gave me a lot of congratulations and also give me 25% of the money.

I was so happy because I know it was a very good thing.
