Do you remember the story just this week about the student who lost his wallet and was helped out by the jeepney driver?
That guy is netizen John Erick Ami. On his way to Adamson University, he lost his wallet. Maybe it was taken, maybe it fell out of his pocket, no one knows.
Not knowing this before riding a jeep, he decided to be honest and told the driver his situation.
What did the driver do? The driver commended him and even gave him 30 pesos so he can go home after. What a guy right?
The post inspired netizens as it was a classic "faith in humanity restored" moments.
Well, this time, it's John's turn to spread the love as he went back to the terminal.
Seeing the driver for the second time, John was overjoyed to see him and was eager to thank him.
Apparently, the driver didn’t want John to pay him back, so he bought him some fast food with an extra side dish of love.
“Yung pag tulong dapat kusa yan, pag may nangangailangan ibibigay mo, bahala na sila kung lolokohin ka nila,” said the Good Samaritan.
Here’s what John has to say about the experience:
“Dahil dito sa pangyayaring to nabago yung pananaw ko sa buhay. Napaka importante pala ng simpleng pag tulong sa kapwa. Hindi hadlang ang kahirapan para maging mabuting tao. At ito ang aral na mas natutunan ko sa labas ng paaralan, sa lansangan.
So binigay ko yung binili kong pagkain kay manong, nakita ko yung bagay na sobrang nakapag pasaya sa akin. Yung walang kahit anong sukli yung papantay.
Yung ngiti ni manong.
Naalala ko tuloy yung paborito kong kanta sa simbahan,
Walang sinuman ang nabubuhay, para sa sarili lamang
Walang sinuman ang namamatay, para sa sarili lamang
Tayong lahat ay may pananagutan sa isa't isa
Tayong lahat ay tinipon ng Diyos
Na kapiling niya"
This story shows us that it doesn’t matter how much we do or how much we give, what matters is that we help each other from our hearts.
