Below is the winner in the 13 Years and Under category of our Ama Ghar blog contest. Jenuka’s writing is very sincere; we hope you’ll find it moving.
“I think everybody knows the meaning of orphan.
Orphan means a person who don’t have father, mother or person to take care of them. The life of an orphan is very touching and pitiful. Orphans are not able to experience the love and care of their family. They don’t know the meaning of love, so we should show some mercy and love to them.
With the comparison between them and us, we should be thankful and proud of ourselves. Most of the orphans are thankful because they have been through the painful life of orphans. The life of orphans is full of sorrow because they had to face many difficult problems. We can see orphanage children in the roads and in orphanage homes. They work very hard so that they can be a successful person in their life.
IF YOU EVER LOST SOME ONE VERY IMPORTANT TO YOU, THEN YOU ALREADY KNOW HOW IT FEELS. AND IF YOU HAVEN’T YOU CAN’T POSSIBLY IMAGINE IT.”
