It is absolutely true that people all the over the world learn from their mistakes. I also have learned some lessons in my life. When I was in Pakistan, there was
really a lot of poor children, adults and old people begging for food and money. I was walking across the street and was amazed by them. Suddenly, one of the children
came near to me and asked me for money. I lied and said after a few moments that I did
not have money with me yet and I walked away,
totally ignoring him
. I never realized how much I had hurt him; how carelessly I had walked away; how I had ignored his hunger and poverty; how I had broken his heart and hope.
I never realized all of these points until I was hurt by a bad fall
from the carousel. I broke my foot and could not stand up- never mind
walk. The same boy
appeared again and said, "Are you alright?
I can help you stand up and walk to your home." I was embarrassed by his generosity and affection. I was speechless and could not say anything to him. I remembered those moments when he had come to me and had asked me for money. I never thought
that some day he would
help through my injuries. I did not say anything and just gave him a huge hug and we both cried on each other's shoulders for a really long time.
That day changed my life, my personality and my thoughts. I never knew I would be transformed
by that boy
. I realized my mistakes and tried to really heal myself. I never hurt any child again.
