“Hardworking and good people like him deserve much more.” This is how a netizen describes a smiling “lolo” in his Facebook post.
A recent post of a netizen named, Benj Samson went viral as he showed a photo of a “lolo” selling bread at the footbridge just in front of SM North EDSA at Quezon City.
The viral photo was posted last June 5, 2019. The netizen admires this “lolo” because of how he smiles. Even though he is just selling bread put at a stainless tray and is covered with plastic that he has to carry every day, he still manages to smile so brightly.
“If u see Lolo on the footbridge of sm north EDSA, buy from him pls even if u don’t need to,” Benj said.
We can see how hard life is for “lolo” because at his age he still needs to work, but that doesn’t stop him to have such a positive vibe. The said post gained a lot of different reactions from the netizens. Here are just some of their touching comments:
“mnsan nabili ako dito . jinoke ko pa si tatay na bibili ako inabot ko 20. pero sbe ko hndi na po tay.. iniwan ko na ung 20.”
“tatay , magpahinga ka na po sana .. sana po yung mga anak mo nalang po ang mag tatrabaho para po sa inyo .”
This smiling “lolo” who do not think of life as hard is such an inspiration to many people. Some of us we just experience little hardships but we act like we have the whole world in our shoulder. Yet this “lolo” even at his age he still works for himself and his family still can give such a bright smile to others.
So if you are always passing at the footbridge and you have money to buy, please let us all help this inspiration.
