Admirable

   So while I was traveling from Manila back to Laguna, I was on a jeep(public transpo). On the way to the bus station, 4 siblings which were to my guess about 2-5 years old(5 being the oldest) boarded our jeep. From their looks and smell one can tell that they were from a poor and probably homeless family. The driver was obviously annoyed as he loudly insulted these children inside his vehicle, but he let them ride free anyways, so there they were sitting while most of the passengers were quite uncomfortable. The reason for my title came when they arrived at their destination and got off the vehicle. As I’ve mentioned before these kids were young and almost as big as each other, yet when they were about to cross the road, the two oldest sisters carried the other two. All of us passengers were awed at what we saw, the 2 older sisters were barely able to carry their sibling but they did it without complain like it was the most normal thing to do. With all of the vehicles going around them, we the passengers just stared and hope that they can cross safely. As I reflected on what I saw, I can’t help but admire those kids. They didn’t just love their sibling but they were responsible for them, I’ve met so many people to know that a lot of them tend to take for granted these kind of acts. But these kids showed me love in it’s simplest form, and for that they have my respect. It’s so nice to see those kinds of moments, when everything around you tells you otherwise. How many “educated” people help their loved ones just by making them coffee or by listening to them? I mean like not just buying stuff or spending money on malls or something. Those kids didn’t have money, but they didn’t need it to show their affection. Let us not forget that love is not about the money we spend but the sacrifice we do for our loved ones, may it be time, or kisses, or helping in the house or in their case, their backs. XD
