Classes will soon resume for high school and elementary pupils in the province. And every time I see kids dragging with themselves rolling book bags, it always reminds me of my every dreamed high sierra freewheel rolling book bag before.
It’s always my dream, my wish when I was still in my primary and secondary school years to own what my classmates have like a very simple rolling book bag. The family is not well off. The time when I was in high school, my three siblings were on their college years already. With that, most but not all of the finances were sent for them. Almost nothing left for me, I assume. And because I belong to a special science section where we have had more than ten (10) subjects a day and needed those books be brought in school, during my senior high days, my parents bought me mini rolling cart where I could put my bag on it and brag them on school. Hence, I never had a chance to use and own my ever dream high sierra freewheel rolling book bag.
But I never regret my younger years nor blamed anyone – my parents or siblings. I still completed my education and I learned, from those days and experiences, how hard to live and to treasure each sacrifices before.
