Guard goes viral for teaching street kid

John Robert Flores shared that he and some companions passed along Gil Puyat in Taft Avenue, Manila. They were touched to see the security guard teaching a street kid some lessons. It turned out that this young man was helping the kid learn how to read and write.

Flores said that he truly admired the security guard and feels proud to witness such a great act of kindness, knowing for sure that this security guard is not the boy’s relative. Even if they just met there while the security guard is working, it was nice of him to spare some time to teach the kid some lessons.

Considering that many street kids are not able to go to school due to financial constraints and because there’s no one to guide them, it is sweet of this security guard to help the kid.

“Sa totoo lang po hindi lang po isa ‘yung tinuturuan niya, na spot namin lima pa sila pero isa lang ‘yung na-take naming photo,” Flores added.

“Meron siyang busilak at mabuting puso para sa mga batang nangangailangan ng tulong. I salute you kuya sana patuloy ka parin bigyan ng blessings ni Lord.”

The post was met with mixed reactions, particularly amid the heated debate over the plan of online or blended learning by the Department of Education (DepEd).

“Kung ang guard on duty my oras may kakayahan magturo sa mga batang need much more the working parents na in this new normal may malaki na magiging partisipasyon ...home schooling po ang best way to make our children safely learning inside the house....kaya natin toh...matuto lang magbudget sa oras...” one netizen wrote.

But others disagreed, pointing out that he was only able to do that because the street kids are really just around and can chat with him anytime. On the other hand, working parents can’t bring their kids to work.
