-Isang 12 taong gulang na bata si Kervin Jerold Pascual na marunong nang magbanat ng buto sa kabila ng kanyang murang isip
-Ayon sa uploader na si John Magsaysay, itinama siya ng bata nang isipin niya na pinagtatrabaho siya ng kanyang magulang, ito daw ay kusa niyang ginagawa
-Hindi umano nagrereklamo si Kervin sa kabila ng hirap ng buhay, sa halip ay iniisp pa umano nitong magtinda pa araw-araw
Labing dalawang taong gulang pa lamang si Kervin Jerold Pascual ngunit alam na nitong magbanat ng buto para sa kanyang baon at pangtulong sa mga magulang.
Ayon pa kay John Magsaysay na siyang naka-spot kay Kervin at nagshare sa kanyang facebook account, itinama umano siya ng bata ng isipin niyang pinagtatrabaho siya ng magulang, bagkus ay sarili umano nitong desisyon ang ginagawang pagtitinda.
Ayon sa post ni John:
This is 12-year old Kervin Jerold Pascual. He goes to school every morning and, after his classes, he sells his neighbors' turon along Katipunan Ave. for a 4-peso profit each. Both his parents work, but he does this to augment their daily income and for him to sustain his allowance for school.
When asked if he gets tired of his daily peddling, he answers no, and in fact looks forward to selling everyday. He also says that he's happiest when he's able to help add to his household income.
Unlike his peers' families, who are 4Ps recipients, Kervin thinks he is better off, being able to earn his keep. He corrected me when I thought it was his parents' idea to have him work this early; he said it was his own initiative.
Maybe during this time when issues of poverty and economic disadvantages are rife, we should try to be more like Kervin, who complains less, and, instead, finds solutions to make his life better. His determination and his diligence is really inspiring, and I'm posting this, knowing full well that this same guy will be a millionaire after a decade.
