However this story is worth retelling as it shows how some do good as a result of what they read.

Filipino boy receives scholarship after photograph of him studying on the street goes viral
The photo showed Daniel Cabrera, 9, doing his homework on a wooden stool placed close to a McDonald's window to catch the light from the store.




A homeless Filipino boy has been overwhelmed with aid after a photograph of him studying on the pavement using faint light from a McDonald's outlet went viral on the internet.
Nine-year-old Daniel Cabrera will now be able to fulfil his dream of becoming a policeman after donations of cash, school supplies and a college scholarship poured in, his mother, Christina Espinosa, said on Friday.



"We're overjoyed. I don't know what I will do with all of these blessings," said Ms Espinosa, a 42-year-old grocery store employee and domestic helper. "Now, Daniel will not have to suffer just to finish his studies."
The photograph, posted on Facebook last month by a college student, showed Daniel doing his homework on a wooden stool placed close to a McDonald's window to catch the light from the store.
The 20-year-old medical technology student, Joyce Torrefranca, captioned her Facebook post: "I got inspired by a kid."



It would be good if there was more of the good stuff - and less of the bad.



You need the dark to see the stars smokin:

Agreed. This, indeed, is a good story. Who knows, he may even decide to continue his studies beyond the requirements for law enforcement and become the next Louis Pasteur...... I wish him well.
