Inspiring Story

On thurday citizen TV who were still showcasing the story of the street cased the street children who are westlands children have been their for quite sometime and i was surprised to see them knowing that they are not cursed. there was this man who really inspired me.every evening this man goes to the corner were this kids gathered and provide them with food.the kids really know him very well and when the camera men were capturing the scenario he was giving them a full loaf of bread and packet of milk.this really inspired me and i thought if the man is giving an opportunity to transform the kids he called easily do it since he is close to them and the kids are also familiar to him and can get closer to him.
