My mother is always telling me to be respectful and use my manners. One day, we were getting groceries
and this elderly man was in front of us. We noticed he was having troubles. He wasn’t walking well and he
was dropping his groceries. As he left, I noticed his cane, he had left it in the buggy! I took it to him and he just smiled and said, “Thank you.” After mom and I had gotten our groceries loaded in our truck, I saw the man, he was still pushing his buggy across the parking lot. We helped him to his car. Then we loaded the groceries into his trunk for him. He was surprised that we had helped him, a stranger and did not want anything from him. When he smiled, his face lit up. Then I knew it was good to be helpful. It was a great feeling.

When other people need help, you need to remember people’s feelings. Even if they don’t ask for help, sometimes they still need help. If you help people, you are helping the community. You always need to offer to help people. If you needed help, wouldn’t you want somebody to offer? You always need to treat others as you want to be treated. If you help others, they will help you. By helping others you are showing kindness. If everyone would help each other the world would be a better place.

Friendship is a very important thing in life. This is what I think about friendship. When you treat friends nice, they will treat you nice back. A friend is someone that comforts you. When you have a friend, you want them to be honest and you want to depend on them. If you do not tell the truth to your friends, they will not want to be your friend. If you tell the truth then they will want to hang out with you. I want my friends to be caring, happy and truthful. Just like the Golden Rule says, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
