Frank Sinatra canta: My way

miércoles, 7 de febrero de 2018


Two homeless men lived together in the outskirts of a city. They lived in an old run down building.
One of them was lame and the other person was blind.
They went to the city everyday to beg for money to buy some food.
The problem was, that they always had serious arguments to get the best corner to ask for money; instead of helping each other.
But one night, the building caught on fire because of a candle.

They knew they would lose everything they had….but the most important thing was to save themselves.
But, as one was lame and the other one blind, they would have serious difficulties coming out alive.

The lame man was thinking that possibly they still had a chance of escaping from the devastating fire. 
But as he was lame, there was no way he could get out running.
The blind man, on the other hand, had two strong legs….but he couldn´t see anything.

When they both knew they were soon going to be burnt alive, they realizedthat they needed one another to escape the flames.
The blind man decided that the best decision was was to carry his lame friend on his back. They would work together as a team.
The blind man would run and the lame man guided him where to go to avoid any kind of obstacles.

In the end they both finally came out alive from the building and were saved.
The moral is:
It´s wiser not to always argue about silly unimportant things. We all need one other in many ways for a common goal…….the most important is working and solving problems together to....SURVIVE.
