'alam mo, engineer ako paglaki ko...' (I'll be an engineer when I grow up..'
'paano kaya.. jeepney driver lang tatay mo eh...' another teased. (yah think?! your father is just a jeepney driver...')

Big dreams begin from small chats such as this. And you don't want to douse that tiny spark within with insensitive comments or remarks, no matter if said in jest or with good intention. If the third kid could think positive thoughts and show such enormous encouragement towards his friend's tiny dream, how much more could we with our adult wisdom compassion and intelligence?!
The difference between God and man is this -- God believes in us..... man does not!
'Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great' ----Mark Twain
