By: Carolina and Juan, aged 10

Peter was a really poor child, but he was happy with his mother and his little brother. Peter was 11 years old and his brother was 3 years old.

One night, Peter's mother was looking for a place to sleep with her children. She found an old house, next to the road.

When crossing the road, a car was driving really fast and knocked down Peter's mother. The car went on as if nothing had happened…

Peter and his brother sadly watched their mother's dead body in the middle of the road. From that moment on, Peter has always looked after his little brother...

This is what happens every day
