Kindness Of Strangers

I was in the Tim Horton's drive-thru getting a coffee, feeling kind of down because I'd been laid off 2 months prior and was realizing it was going to be hard to find a new job like the one I'd had. I had just gone grocery shopping and decided to stop and get a coffee on my way home. As I got to the drive-thru window, the lady informed me that the truck in front had paid for my...

A Lesson For A Dream

Submitted by Starla Arcinue from Cavite

I was sitting outside of our house to watch those kids playing in our neighborhood. It was 4 o’clock in the afternoon and the kids were shouting because of joy. Then, I saw a little girl who was just sitting and watching her siblings to play with those other kids. I have known that little girl and we often called her ‘Inday’. We are living in a slum area that’s why there’s a lot of...

Breakfast To Pump Up

Submitted by Maui from Philippines

One day as I was riding in a cab, I have observed how tired the driver was. I had no idea whether I was the first customer of the driver or maybe his last one.

We still manage to work because we know that if we work hard for something that we want, we receive something in return....

The Printing Station

Submitted by Hazel Cueto from Manila, Philippines

It was Friday, September 18, 2015. I already went to the classroom and found out from my class mate that the homework from last week was to be passed. I couldn't find my homework in my bag, which eventually led me to thinking that I forgot to bring it! Good thing I have a back-up file saved in a flash drive and good thing I still had 15 minutes before the class starts.

With this, I hurriedly...
