That no one is a failure who can truly say i have done my best.
Na walang kwenta ung mga taong (ie. guro) na walang inisip kundi ung profession nila. mga taong robot. mga taong may sinusunod na numeric pattern. sila ung hinahalintulad ko sa sa palabas na AI eh. Ung part na niligtas nung robot si will smith kasi mas may mataas daw na chances of living yun instead dun sa bata. ah basta mahirap i-explain. pero yan natutunan ko, na mas may mahalaga kaysa sa "grade". di ko alam kung pano ilahad pero meron.. meron.. MERON.
