My magical moment happened when I went to my uncle’s crab farm. While I was strolling, I saw a Burmese boy fall into the pond. Without hesitation, I ran and jumped in the water to save him from drowning. It’s the first time I felt satisfied, happy and proud; I thought that saving a life made us all equal regardless of our status and race. Later I found out that my hand phone was busted. My uncle in appreciation, offered to buy me a new hand set. That day I was really overjoyed not as a hero but as a responsible Thai.
