The children are treasure. The children are crystals of love. I want to believe so .
Though it was two years ago already, I had gone to Cebu island for a super-short time studying abroad. To tell the truth, I was disappointed about the English lesson at there, but I did some valuable experiences at that time, so please let me tell here one of them.
The Cebu island is a wonderful resort, but I felt there were another extreme worlds at the inside and outside of the hotel. One day, I visited a orphanage that was on the back side of our hotel with my classmates. About 50 children lived in the orphanage. They seemed boring when we arrived, and I taught cat's cradle(AYATORI) to a girl. She remembered at once cat's cradle I taught, then she taught it to her friends. Their eyes seemed shining.
I heard the girl was a child between a Filipino woman and Japanese man from a staff of the orphanage. And I knew there are many children of such circumstances in Philippine.
It was a very small thing that I can do. However, I was so glad to see their smile. And I can’t forget the scene we saw from the orphanage, and I am praying that they will be able to live with love and pride in their future.
