Lessons Learned


 One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the 
 country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.      
 They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be        
 considered a very poor family.
                                           
 On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, “How was the    
 trip?”                                                                     
 “It was great, Dad.”                                                       
 “Did you see how poor people live?” the father asked.                      
 “Oh yeah,” said the son.                                                   
 “So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?” asked the father.         
 The son answered: “I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a 
 pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that   
 has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the      
 stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the      
 whole horizon.                                                             
 “We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go     
 beyond our sight.                                                          
 “We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food,    
 but they grow theirs.                                                      
 “We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to     
 protect them.”                                                             
 The boy’s father was speechless.                                           
 Then his son added, “Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are.”           
                                                                            


Maybe we can also get some fact of life and learn atleast one lesson from this piece of story.
