- Talk about will and perseverance

- Every day, they would would cross this river and walk on this rope that serves as the bridge of their future
How far are you willing to go in order to learn and reach for your dreams?
"Let's cross the bridge when we get there." Some must have taken that literally.
These Filipino kids from Lanao del Norte don't seem to mind the danger of crossing a river just to get to school.
They were actually crossing without a bridge. Except for the imrpovised rope that they were walking on.
Looking at the video, one little boy, who is about 3 or 4 years old, and a young girl in her uniform (probably the little boy's sister) were seen trying to balance themselves as they move slowly to reach the other side of the rope.
The footage was posted by Pinoy Viral Videos over an hour ago.
Netizens who happened to watch what the kids did were all heartbrokenhearted.
