Two friends were walking through the desert. At some point in the journey
they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The
one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.
They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a
bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started
drowning, but the friend saved him. After he was saved from nearly drowning,
he wrote on a stone:
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.
The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, “After I
hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone – why?”
His friend replied “When someone hurts us we should write it down in sand
where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does
something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever
LEARN TO WRITE ‘HURTS’ IN THE SAND AND TO CARVE ‘BLESSINGS’ IN STONE.
