VIRAL: Voice of an ANGEL

As shared to us by Sir Rommel Aguilar Buhay his wonderful experience with this little angel.

VIRAL: Voice of an ANGEL


I usually leave the office at exactly 6:00am to avoid the early morning rush. I was with one of my officemates and we decided to take the LRT Buendia bus that was already waiting for passengers. I was seated behind my officemate and as I was putting my earphones on, I heard someone singing. At first I thought I was just hallucinating so I asked my teammate "Naririnig mo yun? Sino yun?". She said "Oo. Yung bata yun" then pointed to the young girl infront of us. She sang two songs, I forgot the title but the last one was a tagalog worship song.
Her voice was amazing. For a girl here age, she sang very well. Even the old man seated beside me was so impressed. He smiled and said "Pwede pang The Voice Kids yan.". After the second song, she stood up and shouted "Pasensya na lang po sa abala. Baka po may mga tira o sobrang pagkain po kayo. Pagkain lang po.". Honestly, I was expecting her to ask for money. The typical "Barya lang po, Ma'am/Sir.". Almost everyone gave her food. Some gave her money. I gave her two Fudgee Bars. Those were supposed to be my snack but I wasn't able to eat them. I asked her "Ganda boses mo ah. Ang aga pa nasa labas ka na.". Her answer was "Salamat po Sir. Wala na po kasi nagbibigay sa amin ng kapatid ko ng pagkain. Maaga po ako umalis para makauwi po ako bago magising ang kapatid ko. Para po kasi sa kanya to.". After hearing that, I found myself giving her the extra 20 bucks that I have. She smiled at me. I asked her If I can take her photo and then she gave me that smile. Don't hesitate to help this little angel if ever you bump into her. It breaks my heart to see someone as young as her begging for food. "Dapat nasa school sya at nag-aaral. Di dapat sya naghahanap ng makakakain nilang magkapatid.".
Now, how hard is your life again?
