Oseola McCarty, an ordinary worker with a thrifty lifestyle, donated a great deal of money to a university, which aroused public attention and earned her widespread social recognition. In return, she received a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. Virtuous and warm-hearted, the lady concerned has donated a considerable amount of saving to help college students struggling with financial difficulties,
thereby motivating people at any other corner of the world to participate in this affectionate activity. From where I stand, not only will the lady’s generosity paint a very brilliant blue print for the future of those students in want of money, but also it will rekindle their faith in life by convincing them that their life goal is elevating and worth trying. Given the choice, I would make donations to those who still live under the bottom line of the modern living condition. Convincing arguments as follows can be made to support my stance. For one thing, generous and selfless dedication may take indispensable assistance to them, especially for the time when they are confronted with pain and sorrow, twists and turns. For another, just as an Indian old saying goes, roses in her hand; flavor in mine. That is to say, great satisfaction would step slowly and gracefully in to the mercy-producers’ souls as well. To bring as many angel-like smiles as possible to our society, we should practice more beneficial performance by leading a thrifty life.
