A Little Hope

In mid-January, I met up with my two close friends (lovers) to do shopping. After 2 hours of shopping we all got hungry and decided to have a quick snack in McDonalds. Each of us had our value meal inclusive of Cheese Burger, Fries and Coke, plus her favourite Plain Ice Cream in Cone.
While we are in the middle of discussing some important notes, I saw a boy (he might be mixed Chinese, Kadazan or Duson) barefooted and kept strolling all over and over again around the area outside McDonalds' extension place. I was distructed by his behaviour. I can see how brave he was, he wasn't shy at all. At first I thought he was with someone so I watched him going to an emptied corner table. He sat for awhile. His eyes are rolling and looking to each of the tables including us. Then he suddenly stand up, walked straight passing my side and begun eating the leftover foods while drinking the coke.
I was hurt just to watched how hungry he was. I started talking to him. I asked him not to continue eating the leftover and offered my own food. He made a glance and straight away took my food without even saying a word. When our hands touched, it was cold as ice. He then started eating again and finished drinking the coke. He stood up once again and this time he took the leftovers he could find on each table that he passes, put it on the plastic and went off.
After 15 minutes, he was back again but there were no more foods in his hands nor drinks. He started taking and taking more leftovers and people was just staring at him. Nobody shared their own foods even at least a small amount that they could offer.

"Until these days, there are still a few of parents who let their kids roam around, not taking care of them. They are suppose to be in school not inside the malls, not along the streets working for everyday survival and not even along the rubbish bins looking for cans, cartons, papers and other items that still can be sell.
Young people are supposed to be nurtured for their better future. This generations are supposed to be guided. They make a family but could not attain to be a good father and mother. Why getting pregnant if you can't let the
"innocent child" have a good future? God didn't told us to multiply and left them behind this world full of arrogance, wicked and temptations!
I hope that one day these kids would understand what its like to be a real mother/father and to have a loving family and not letting them go like what they have experienced from their own pasts."
