We all know that "sticks and stones may break our bones", but we should also be aware that words can hurt people, too.
As is widely acknowledged, whatever small good deeds we do can definitely make a big difference in our life. I learned this from one of my experiences that I went through during my Senior One school life.
One day, when I was wandering through the street, I suddenly witnessed an old man fall to the ground. Without hesitation, I hurried to help him stand up and rested him in a street chair nearby. What surprised me most was that some classmates warned me not to do it again as the family might mistake me for the offender. I was so frustrated that I almost accepted the fact that I had really done something improper. It was my parents’ approval and the teachers’ praise as well as the family’s gratitude that helped me the good deed I had done. From then on, whenever possible and wherever necessary, I am always willing to give a helping hand to those in need. It wasn’t long before I was chosen as one example in our school for helping others.
From this story, I am absolutely convinced that small kind deeds are worth doing in spite that we may be wronged for this. Only in this way can we contribute to building a harmonious society.
