>at first, i watched this video because i found it in a zac efron forum. watched it solely for that reason too. and now, after watching this 2 parts of video, i found a deeper, and whole lot meaning to it. screw zac for now, this 9 year old girl is someone i have come to respect and learn from after watching the videos.

it’s about how Tierney Jasper, at the age of 5, came to know about how kids were suffering around the world, and had since decided that she must do something about it. currently 9years old. what she did, you just have to watch the videos yourself.

from her, i’ve learnt that, there’s a huge difference to knowing the sufferings of people and NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT, and actually REALIZING, and most importantly, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. we have, including me, lived in happiness and stability for most probably, the whole of our lives. and although, through TV programmes and all, we know of sufferings and people or animals who needed help, most of us just feel pitiful, cry over their sufferings, and DO NOTHING ABOUT IT. now i find that VERY MEANINGLESS. what’s the point, if you don’t do anything to make a difference?

but this young girl, meek age of only 9, actually did something to make a difference. i think she desrved that zac efron hug. lols. i won’t be jealous or envious over it/ HAHAA! in fact, i felt a sense of guilt, realizing how selfish we all are, and how selfless these innocent children can be. you should really take a look at her younger brother’s expression when he knew how much the organization donated.

this post was not expressed as well as i hope i did, but i guess a view at the 2videos below would give you a larger picture of what i’m referring to.

  2. >hello there, I was shocked to have receive a comment from you, having to just pen my feelings down on my blog is such a natural thing for me to do. So your comments really came in as a surprise. And yes, I'm pretty sure your daughter is one of a kind, and definitely a role model for everyone, especially me. I'm glad I came upon this video, as I've really learnt alot from such a young figure like Tierney. Anyway, do help me wish Tierney best of luck in everything she does! And thank you, Tierney, for being such an inspiration to my life.GekTeng(:
