    Whenever it started to pelt down, and raindrops started to trickle down the windows, I would remember an incident that changed my life last year.

    One year ago, I used to be stubborn and selfish, so I had few friends. However, on a school day, my attitude towards people changed.


    When the school day was over, I was returning home. When I heard a screech on the road which I was about to cross.

    Suddenly, the pedestrians ran to the other side. That was when I noticed what happened: Ferrari was racing down the road, swerving side to side.


    Just as it was about to crash onto an old lady who couldn’t cross the road timely, I leapt out onto the road as if I was an acrobat performing tricks, and pushed the lady out of the way just before the car crashed next to a convenience store.


    The crowd pedestrians were stunned by what they saw and called a policeman. As the policeman arrived and sentenced the drunk driver to jail, the road returned to normal. Even though I had injured my left leg in that incident, I am still proud of what I did.


    From then on, I decided to change my attitude towards people and be helpful and open-minded.

    As a result, not only did I get more friends, but I also felt happier after that meaningful day.


    Shortly after that significant event, there was another incident that also changed my life and my personality.

    One ordinary Monday morning, I overslept and had to run as fast as I could to arrive at school just in time.


    As I was sprinting along a row of shops, I noticed a skinny boy who was squatting outside a closed restaurant. I was only thinking about not being late for school, so I hardly noticed the boy.


    When I stopped at the bus station, I couldn’t prevent myself from thinking about how poor that child was. I decided to help him. I made up my mind, so I turned around and ran as fast as I could back towards the shops even though the bus arrived.


    Fortunately, the boy hadn’t left the restaurant. I gave my lunch and my pocket money to him. The boy was shocked and hesitated to accept these things, but after a while, he took my lunch and gobbled up the sandwiches. After he had finished, he left without saying a word.


    Even though I was late for school. I cared more about people in need and gave help to them; I was also more grateful for what I had.

    As a result, I realized that my life had become more meaningful and happy ever since those two incidents.
