This morning as I was heading to class, one of my former students caught up with me and offered me her old textbook from the class. She asked me to please give it to a poor student who couldn't afford the cost of the book.

This is the second time one of my ESL 100 students has done that, and I think it's a very kind thing for one student to do for another. It's truly giving with no thought of return, just to help another person in a difficult situation and make it a little easier for that person to be successful in class.
