"Minsan ang tingin sa kanila ng iba masaya, dahil palagi silang masaya sa harap ng maraming tao at lalong lalo na sa harap ng kanilang pamilya kapag kausap sa social media..
"Pero hindi natin naisip na sa kanilang masasayang muka, may kaakibat itong sakit, hirap, at pangungulila.
"Minsan akala natin okay lang sila, ang totoo napapagod at nahihirapan din sila..
"Kaya sana naman pahalagahan natin ang tulad nila, lalong lalo na ang perang pinapadala nila..
"Simpleng 'kamusta ka na?' 'ingat ka po' 'i love you' ay malaking bagay at nagpapagaan sa kalooban nila.
"Huwag mahiyang sabihin na mahal na mahal mo siya.. baka yun ang nagpapatatag sa kanila."
