What do you do... what can you do...

What do you do when an international student comes to you with a financial problem?
What do you do when the student had expected to obtain a scholarship, and had failed to do so?
What do you do... when during 'normal' days, the student is so radiant, so energetic, and so full of hope and smiles?
And what do you do... when the student breaks down, weeps... and cries for help...

For what can I do... to provide each and everyone of the needy international students with a scholarship...

The student leaves the room, dry-eyed by now...
and silently, in the privacy of my own company, my heart cries...
Oh god, this is just beyond my reach... for my eyes can only sob for them...
