Today I was walking to the library, I walk past the nursing home on my way there. This time as I was walking towards the library, I saw an old woman sitting alone.

My cousin and I went to a local fast food place and we were in line behind this man. He did not have enough money for his meal. I overheard and offered to pay.

This morning I donated a box full of my childhood books to the local library. I hope that those who read these books can gain some knowledge which may help them in the future. It is said that knowledge is the best gift you can give, and I hope to donate more books for children to read.
It feels really good to donate!! While I was there, I also signed up to volunteer to read to the children on my free days. This will be a wonderful experience which I await eagerly.
