a story

There is something magnificent in telling stories. Short stories have even bigger impact- it takes all the gifts of a storyteller to invent a unique short story to reach the soul and bring an uplifting effect.
Today I share with you a story I like to tell my students, especially the high school graduate class, because, well, I trully believe in them and I want them to know that. After all, everybody loves a good story.

"Mum had left early in the morning and left them with Marina, an eighteen year old girl that she used to hire every now and then to take care of them for a few pesos.
Since their father had passed away, times were really harsh, so she couldn't skip work every time granny was ill or out of town.

A few years ago, at the end of the school year, an incident happened between a teacher and some high school students. She said, he said, they said … and the whole thing became huge.
Rumours where spread and soon, pretty much everybody was talking about it.

I walked into the class to find the students kind of upset and the atmosphere edgy.
