New Kids On the Roof
Shot: As my classmates and I were volunteering our time to help
Habitat for Humanity
by building a roof of a house, I saw a Hispanic woman drove by with windows
rolled down and two little girls dressed alike in the backseat. The car slowed down to a complete stop. The woman pointed toward us with her finger and spoke to the little girls.
Then the girls stared at us and burst out
laughing. At that moment, I wondered what the woman
thought of us and what she said to those girls that caused them to laugh.
Reverse Shot: This morning
while I was taking my two daughters to school, I saw a number of boys and girls
hammering nails on a roof. Immediately,
I figured out that these kids were college kids that worked with Habitat
for Humanity and donated their time to help in building affordable homes
for my community. Admiring them, I
pointed my finger toward them and told my daughters that those people helped in building our home. My children burst out laughing because some of the college
kids waved at them with hammers .
