Emma Smilg was a girl who was about 8. She had a bright and happy soul which many did not see. They saw nothing else but her freckled face, grey eyes, and blond-haired curly hair of which a few strands came on her face as the cool wind blew by. She was on her way home from school. She was just a shy young girl who had big dreams. And not to mention, she was very brainy and generous. Due to this she only had two friends Maya and Timathy. Both had felt sorry for Emma, so they decided to be friends with her.
One day, Emma and Maya were walking together after school. Timathy had some extra classes, so she was unable to come with them. On their way, they saw a girl who was all alone. They had noticed her a few days ago but were not confident enough to talk to her. Emma geared up the courage and walked towards. The girl first ignored their kindness but eventually stood up. Her name was Linda, and she was extremely poor and was not able to attend school nor buy herself books for education. Emma talked to Linda about how was school and how she loved going there but never felt included.
Meanwhile, Timathy saw Emma with Linda and they also stood with Maya. They all were sad and even sadder when Linda started crying. An idea splashed Emma's mind. Emma thought of having a yard sale to earn enough money for Linda. All the four girls donated their useless things and the yard sale happened and they all managed to collect enough money to provide for the fees but Emma and her parents had another small plan. They decided to talk to George, the principal about making a category where the children who cannot afford to pay the full fees only have to pay 50 % of it. George agreed to this and this is how the EWS category came to be. But we should all remember to treat the children the same and equal because they are also humans. Also, instead of showing sympathy, we should always show empathy. We should try understanding their feelings like young Emma.
