The successful billionaire Mark once had a happy life with his family, unfortunately his wife and child died in a car accident. He was never happy since.
After Mark lost his family, he replaced them by filling up his garage full of sports cars and fast motorcycles. He even bought a ferry and parked it in front of the driveway.
Mark always invited his friends over for parties to show off his beautiful collections of sports cars, motorcycles and a huge ferry. After the crazy parties, he still felt emptiness and loneliness.
One day, Mark drove around aimlessly and spotted an old village. He was surprised to see children selling fruits beside the road. He was very curious so he got out of his car and went to ask the children.
“Why are you children not in school today?” Mark asked. They replied that they must sell all the fruits to attend school. He expressed sympathy for the poor children so he decided to buy all the fruits.
Afterwards, Mark followed the children to their school. On their way to school he saw the condition of the surrounding area was very poor. The houses had broken windows and the streets were shabby.
Once they arrived, the school was badly damaged. Mark saw a lack of facilities. There weren’t enough classrooms, tables and chairs for students to use. Even the playground was used as a classroom.
Suddenly, there was a flash of light in the sky and Mark saw his son appear as an angel. “I know you would help the children because you have a kind heart.” the angel said. Mark burst into tears afterwards.
Mark wanted to help the school children so he intended to rebuild the school and add facilities. Apart from that, he would also support the children throughout their education. He hoped to provide a better environment for all children to study.
Soon after, the school was complete. Everyone had their own desk and chair. Mark thought it could be very meaningful if he shared his experiences with the children. The school was full of joy and happiness. From then on, Mark regained his smile again.1 / 11
