My choice

My name is Trofim, I’m a 6th grade student from Poltava, Ukraine - and my story of kindness began long time ago. I was 10 years old, it was autumn and I walked home from school. I went to the shop, because I wanted to buy some treats for myself – I had some money. But then I noticed an old woman, she stood near the store and begged others for some money. I had a choice: to buy something for me or to help her. And I didn’t even realize it at first, but I suddenly gave her my money. Walking home I was thinking “Why did I do this?”. But then I felt joyful for this deed and understood that was really kind of me.
