After this year’s Princeton Community Works, Marge Smith received “Six Little Stories” by email from one of the participants. She thought it would be great to share, and ask others to share their “stories” as well. If you have a story to share, please add it to the comments below.
“SIX LITTLE STORIES!”
Once all villagers decided to pray for rain.
On the day of prayer all the people gathered,
but only one boy came with an umbrella.
When you throw babies in the air,
they laugh because they know you will catch them.
Every night we go to bed
without any assurance of being alive the next morning,
but still we set the alarms to wake up.
We plan big things for tomorrow
in spite of zero knowledge of the future.
We see the world suffering,
but still we get married and have children.
On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence
‘I am not 80 years old;
I am sweet 16 with 64 years of experience.’
Have a happy day and live your life like the six stories!
