Today I was out shopping with my mom at a store. While a lady in front of us in the checkout line, I spied a kid that looked 2 years younger than me. He was trying to get some gum but probably was out of money, because he just stared at the dispenser with sad eyes.
When my mom and I were walking out the store, I turned back around to the kid and gave him a quarter and said "Buy yourself some gum" and I ran back to my mom. After I gave him the money there was a feeling in my stomach that said "Giving is better than getting."
