One story cannot change the world but nobody is exempt from feeling emotional when confronted with stories about life struggles.
Many people believe that the moment we're born in this world, our destiny has already been made. As a result, we don't have the ability to choose the parents we'll be born to or the place where we are supposed to spend the rest of our lives in.
We also cannot escape natural disasters and calamities created by nature.
In a speech delivered by famous athlete David Beckham recently, he shared the story of a young Filipina which moved him.
As the camera started rolling, Beckham was seen holding back tears as he tells the story of Venus and Viana.
The two girls are survivors of typhoon Haiyan which stuck the Philippines in 2013. The tragedy killed thousands of Filipinos in Tacloban.
