Life is About Forgiving

In a family, there are parents Chamreun and Rady, and a daughter, Pechary. Pehcary is short, generous, and she likes helping her friends. When she goes to school, she meets a new friend, Nary. Nary doesn’t like Pechary. She always disturbs Pechary by saying bad things, but Pechary doesn’t care about her and smiles right back to her.

One Monday morning, Nary said to Pechary nasty words, “Pechary, I hate you! I don’t like you! You are too short!”

Pechary replied, “If you hate me, it is your right. But I never hate. I love you. I like you. You are also my good friend.”

On Monday afternoon, when Nary went back home, she had an accident and she could not walk. She sat in a wheelchair. After four days, she was better and she went to school, but no one talked with her and played with her. She felt alone. One day, her classmate Nisa said, “You are disadvantaged person!”

When Pechary hears this, she tries to tell Nisa, “You shouldn’t say that! No one is disadvantaged person. Every person is good and better.” When Nisa hears that, she is shy and apologizes to Nary.

“I’m sorry Nary,” says Nisa.

Nary smiles and replies, “It’s okay.”

Then Nisa goes away. After that, Nary asks Pechary, “Why are you good to me? I did many bad things with you.”

Pechary replies, “I told you already. You are also my good friend. My parents always advise me to forgive is the best way to live altogether.” Nary smiled with her tears and said, “I’m sorry, thanks for your kindness.”

Pechary replies, “It’s okay. We are good friends forever. We smile altogether and keep on our dreams and forgive each other.”

We visit the forest around the lake – travel.
The travels on the lake… imagine my future, our future.
We are going to go to the lake, we see fish, fishing, a lifestyle.
House on the water.
We smile together, dance together, stay together,
We are happy together.
Then we study together with best friends.
Our place is to share knowledge.
We go visit around the lake and driver takes visitors around to look,
Green forest goes on and we eat fish together.

Place of Future Plan

We are students and have duty to study and my duty is to listen to teacher teach.
When I finish my studies, I want to be a doctor.
I am happy to help people in the society, together.
I want to go to a beach because it is comfort

My Love

I think that I am a sister and a daughter in my family.
And, my family always thinks that I need to be more good for my family than my
younger sister and my younger brother.
So, I need to think and do something good,
and can help my family and I do not make mistakes.
Sometimes I never think about myself and I always think about my family too much.
Sometime I think that I make everyone happy,
Although I never know that myself is happy or sad.
I’m happy and smile when I see my family, and friends are happy and they are laughing.
Sometimes I always ask myself, what is happening in my future?
If I think of my feelings.
Although, I still think about their feelings too!

Friendship

Everyone in the world was born without everything.
They are born with a fresh mind, and have different attitudes.
Some are shy, brave, happy, free and strong!
However, they must have the communication!
So, as friends we need to share knowledge,
dreams,
help each other,
motivation.
We need to think, what is happening in the future?
We don’t know what challenges we will have,
but we will do as much as we can to keep our friendship.
We must fight the challenges we face.
Just like the sunshine behind the rain,
We will see a sunny day.
Our communication/friendship will not end.
