WRITTEN IN THE SAND
A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert.
During some point of 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, he wrote in
"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 his friend
saved him. After he recovered from the near 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?"
The other friend replied: "When someone hurts us, we
should write it down in sand, where the 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 erase it."
