Antoine de Saint-Exupéry claimed that friends are like silent angels, who lift us up when our wings forget how to fly. .
In his words, there is a lot of truth and this relates to difficult situations in which true friends will always help us. They will be with us for good and bad, not only when it is good, but also when black clouds appear over our heads. They will not step away, they will not criticize and will not pretend that they do not see problems, only with common forces, but will try to find a way out of a difficult situation.
GMB photo reporter Akash posted on his Facebook a real story of a poor man who was doing what he could to get money for his daughters’ educations. In a few days, it captured the hearts of Internet users. Here he is:
I never told my children where I work. I did not want them to be ashamed of me. When my youngest daughter asked what I was doing, I answered hesitantly that I was a worker. When I came home every day I freshened up in public restrooms, so they would not suspect what I was doing. I wanted to send my daughters to school to educate them. I wanted them to become worthy people. I did not want anyone to look at me like they look at me now. People always humiliate me.
Every part of my earnings has been invested in children’s education. I never bought myself a new shirt. Every penny was spent on books for them. I wanted to buy them respect. I was just a janitor. The day before my daughter went to college, I was not able to pay the entrance fee. I could not work that day. I was sitting in the trash, trying to hide my tears. All my colleagues looked at me, but no one came up to say anything. I had a broken heart and I felt I had lost.
