Lending money helps a dear friend

One day of the year I have done a good action. While we were in the classroom, my friend asked me if could lend him some money because he had a problem in his house. He and his family didn’t have much money and he wanted to know if I had any. I told him I would help and would lend him some moeny. He and his family had an economic problem because they had to give much money back to the bank. I didn’t give it a thought and told him I would help him with this problem. The bank was pressing them to give the money back or else they would file a lawsuit and then he and his family would have a problem with the police.

And that is the good action I have done to help…by lending my best friend money.

Gentle friends help a little girl recover

Last month, when I was walking with my friends in our school’s garden, I realised that a little girl had hurt herself.

When my friends and I realized what happened, we quickly went over to her and asked her what had happened. She explained that a boy in the third class had kicked her on her foot and she fell down. She hurt herself ans was injured.

I, with my friends, took her to the principal’s office and we explained to the headmaster what had happened. One other teacher looked after the injured girl. The headmaster explained to us that the guilty person will be punished and we were all happy.

In the end, after a few days, the girl was well and we were all very happy. I learned that all people must help the injured and not to go away from them.

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.
