Reaction on Chicken A La Carte by Ferdinand Dimadura
What affected you? Why?
What are your realizations?
What does it tell you as a student of Biology?
What affected me was seeing how the less fortunate were so easily satisfied and happy with just having leftover food. The children could not wait to get their hands on the food brought by one man from their community.

I could start by being part of an outreach program that provides food, education, etc. It does not matter whether what I do may be big or small, whether I get recognition for it or not. What is important is that I am able to impart something in their lives and share the blessings...
