In addition, I also visited other people in the nursing home, which made them quite happy and improved their spirits.

Besides these positive deeds, another daily deed is helping students in my class with homework, schoolwork and studying for tests. This deed helps me to reduce my selfishness and be generous and helpful. As I have clearly proved, these good deeds and the rest of my...
