mr. anonymous and the engineer
March 18, 2018 11:29pm CST
i saw a plaque of recognition dated 2006 for a mr. anonymous. it says it's for supporting a scholarship program for poor but deserving students from his hometown. he sponsored a scholar who graduated in civil engineering that will give him a brighter horizon in the future. i wonder where that engineer is now? how successful he has become? how he feels about his sponsor? will he do the same - help someone finish school? i used to think about having an activity place for children in the neighborhood to read, watch, listen and play with educational things. do you have genuine concern and want to uplift your neighborhood? or your hometown? or would rather do it somewhere else?

In our neighborhood, I spearheaded the solicitation of my neighbor's financial help by dividing the calculated expenses of having the 3 street lights leading to our neighborhood. Good thing, it was received with a positive response and they all give their share. After which, I hired an electrician and let him buy all the needed materials and do them. Maybe, when I retire I can do more to beautify the neighborhood.
We always look back to our hometown and it's even nice to pay forward the kindness that was given to us. A professor in college once helped me, not with my grades, but in recognising a grade that was truly mine but the only proof was his signature or I wouldn't be able to graduate. He told me, I have helped you, now don't forget to help others.
