I have always laud at youngsters who were able to do great things even at a tender age. These kids have been nurtured with the right values and had shown that age wasn’t a hindrance to begin with, as long as you know what your goals are. They had proven through amazing heroism that a kid’s small deed could spell a BIG difference in their community or society.
