As is widely acknowledged, whatever small good deeds we do can definitely make a big difference in our life. I learned this from one of my experiences that I went through during my Senior One school life.
One day, when I was wandering through the street, I suddenly witnessed an old man fall to the ground. Without hesitation, I hurried to help him stand up and rested him in a street chair nearby.

It wasn’t long before I forgave him and we were again close friends as ever.
From this story, I am definitely convinced that bad words really have bad
