After talking to her, it made me realized how lucky I am to be studying in a very good school since Grade school. I don't have to worry about money or going to school because my parents pay my tuition fee and I have a ride to school. But there are people, like her who doesn't even get to finish high school. She became a working student just for her future but unfortunately, her sister took away that dream of hers to study. Her sister forced her parents to let her study instead of her and Ate Ly, being the elder sister, agreed. Unfortunately, her sister did not finish school because she just quit. Ate Ly was devastated about it because she could have finished high school already.
This story of hers just became a slap in my face. I take things for granted sometimes. Like my education and my house and my clothes and all that. I feel so thankful right now that I don't have to worry about my education like some people do.
It's such a sad fact about education here in the Philippines. Only a few graduate and some doesn't even deserve it. I just felt pity for Ate Ly because I saw in her eyes the dream of graduating(even just high school). This made me want to help more. Nothing can replace education that's why I don't understand why my brother doesn't see that.
I just wish I could be super rich to help out people like her. Someday, I will. I will find out a way to help out more.
