It was awesome to listen to the stories of the families especially the Butic Family whose father regularly tills his own land and continues to serve and help others.Their humility inspired me to continue my own crusade to help my students. A proof that it isn't about what you have that matters to help others but what you can serves these families as role models to all skeptic about sharing.
