My family was visiting China, and we were on our way back from a local market when a little girl about six years old, dressed in rags, came out from behind a tree and started begging for money.  We kept walking, but then I thought about how she was the same age I was, and […]

The other day I was riding home on my school bus. There were two second graders who had fallen asleep with their heads resting on one another’s. One child was a Caucasian girl. The other child was an African American boy. I knew they were best friends because my mom was friends with the girl’s […]

One day, I wasn’t feeling so great and I felt pretty bad. The whole day I was down in the dumps and depressed. My family and I walked into a restaurant and I was the last to walk in. I saw an old man coming as the door was closing. He had a slight limp […]

I was working at a processing plant for Operation Christmas Child, sorting through all of the boxes.

I was out riding horses with my friend Erica. We were both galloping on horses we had rented. Without even trying, our horses matched strides perfectly, and we were exactly side-by-side.

A thing that makes me happy in life is when I’m visiting a park. And getting excited, because it makes me happy when I see animals like lions, zebras, springboks (a type of antelope), and others. Motlatso, 13, South Africa

The moment that I won’t forget is the moment when I first saw the ocean. I was so happy and a bit scared, because I wasn’t sure if it was the ocean or clouds that I was seeing. When I went closer I was able to tell. I was also scared of the waves, oh […]
