Kindness is unlocking a door

One week ago I was with my friend Kosma. We were walking and an old lady said she was locked out of her house. My friend and I said “we will help you”. And then I got into her house through a window and went to the front door and opened it from the inside. She said “thank you” and we said “you’re welcome”. She wanted to give us money for helping her and we said “no thank you”!

Help with homework

A good action which I have done was in my school. One day I went to the school and I was in a hurry because I was late and was afraid I would lose the lesson. When I went in the school, it was time for English class and I was very happy because English is my favorite subject. When the bell rang, two children asked me if I could help them with their exercises. I helped them and I answered all the exercises. I tried to make them understand and to get a good mark.

They thanked me for my help and I felt very happy because I have done a good action and the feeling I had helped with their homework is very important for me.

Caring for an injured dog

One day when I was returning home from school, I saw a dog outside my home’s door. It was black and big.

When I went closer to it I realized that it had an injury and that it was probably hit by a car. Also, I was amazed of the fact that it had a leash on it. Maybe its owner told him to go away. And it was so beautiful.

Immediately I told my parents about it. We decided to give it food. We hoped that its owner would find us to give it to him. Day after day I was playing with it more and more. Inside of me I hoped that is owner wouldn’t find it.

But one day I saw a man talking to it and I asked my mum about it and she told me that it was its owner. I was very sad when I heard it.

Sharing with others

One day as I was crossing the street with my friends I saw a really poor guy. He was dressed in rags and seemed to be starving. He begged us for some money or to get him something to eat. I didn’t have much money on me and despite that I gave him all the money I had because he needed it more than me! I felt sorry about him. All my friends asked me why did I give him the money and I told them that I just felt like it.
