A simple gift can change their life...

It started out as a simple day at school. During lunch, one of my friends asked to borrow some money to buy something at concessions because he didn’t have very much to eat. At first, I thought, “No, I don’t really want to.” But, after some time, I decided to give him some. So, I gave him a dollar, and he went and bought some Dr. Pepper. Initially, I was thinking, “Why waste good money on a soda?” But then I realized how happy and grateful he was. I loved to see him being so happy just because of a simple dollar. Before this, we weren’t really very good friends. But, after I gave him this gift, it seems as if we have a better friendship. One simple gift can change someone’s life.
