Before the semester ends, we're asked to write a reflection of what we've learned and it has to submitted next meeting. So here it goes.
I've always wanted to join a community service but never had a chance or perhaps I was too lazy to get involved with or didn't have enough courage to do so. So, the chance was given to me, which I can't excuse myself anymore and it's really a good experience. Though, it's very tiring every service, I found a sense of happiness and fulfillment especially if you see them happy of what we're doing and also if you've let your generosity flow with it.
Each class was divided by a group and each group has an assignment in the area and our group was assigned for literacy for kids which is more fun to me. And slowly, I saw myself like them when I was their age and I remember that being a kid was the one of the best moments of my life. I enjoyed every piece of it though there were bad times but they were being completely covered by the good times that I had.

If there's a chance for me to continue doing this thing, I would love to do it with people or with children who's almost have nothing with them. It always tear my heart out to see people like them, and the most thing that I can do is to give them the food or the bottled water that I have in my bag or worse is to only watch them being like that and pray for them (sighs).
Have you also had a learning experience where you are helpless?
ps. i carelessly deleted all the photos that i took on our last visit, :(
