Out for a walk.

Yesterday afternoon I went out for a walk with my friends. They were glad to walk. We went to the forest. This forest is near my town and there is beautiful view there. Next to the forest there is a football field where some young guys were playing football. We stood watching the boys playing. Then we decided to go down to the forest. I asked them them why don´t we walk inside the forest. We arrived at a small river and we sat down near the river. We heard the sounds of the water,the…

One Year on EC

It was on 1st October 2014 when I was searching for more explanation about grammar on Google that I found and joined EC. This kind of site was not familiar to me. I didn't know much nor really cared if there were so many benefits I could get from here. What I saw here was I could have my own page and I would be able to upload photos. I got comments and made friendship. What about you? I wonder how you could get here.…

Writing Challenge: A Letter For The Philippines

Dear Philippines,

You are called the Pearl of the Orient seas as you are like a gem in the midst of the vast Pacific Ocean.  An archipelago of 7000 islands stringed together by lush tropical waters that on first view may seem so still and yet so dynamically pregnant with marine life.   Tropical green pastures and flora blanket every inch of your ground like tinsel wrapping for your fertile earth.  Your horizon gives way to an expanse of clear blue skies and shifting clouds that…

Our town, Crystal River, is rather small with the population of about 15,000, located at the estuary of the river with the same name. There is almost nowhere to go or nothing to do here.

People don't always see eye to eye

Yes, people's opinions may vary, or rather, people may differ about something.  That's to say people may accept or tolerate something which seems so intolerable to others. 

People come from different countries or nations with different cultural backgrounds, religions. They're educated or raised in a way which their parents or teachers think is right. You may call it 'brainwash'. 

So, how could you think all the people around the world should always see eye to…
