Children Can Teach Us Great Things

"It was a sports stadium. Eight Children were standing on the track to participate in the running
event.

* Ready! * Steady! * Bang !!!

With the sound of Toy pistol, all eight girls started running. Hardly have they covered ten to fifteen steps, one of the smaller girls slipped and fell down, due to bruises and pain she started crying.

When other seven girls heard this sound, they stopped running, stood for a while and turned back; they all ran back to the place where the girl fell down.

One among them bent, picked and kissed the girl gently and enquired. 'Now pain must have reduced'. All seven girls lifted the fallen girl, pacified her, two of them held the girl firmly and they joined hands and walked together and reached the winning post.

Officials were shocked. Clapping of thousands of spectators filled the stadium. Many eyes were filled with tears. The applause and elation was so loud that perhaps it had reached the heavens!

This happened in Hyderabad, recently. The sport was conducted by National Institute of Mental Health.

All these special girls had come to participate in this event and they are spastic children. Yes, they were Mentally Challenged. What does these children taught the world with their simple acts of kindness and concern for their kin?

Teamwork? Humanity? Equality among all? Successful people help others who are slow in learning so that they are not left far behind."

    Children are unselfish and honest until they learn from a society that all but preached dishonesty and selfishness. I hope that just one of those that I describe were touched by this heart warming story and changed forever.

    A wonderful story Earth, Thank You.

    Donald,

    Yeah I agree, sometimes I wish I was a child again innocent and pure. I wish I didn't know as much as I know right now and remain a child but it's impossible.
