“The meaning of life is not what it gives us, but how we behave towards it; It's not about what happens to us, but about how we react to it.” - Lewis L. Dunnington
A recent college graduate looking for a job participated in a specialized creative competition organized by a union of universities across the country. After many preliminary rounds lasting for months, he was included in the group of the best people to participate in the final round.Then he also struggled to overcome his opponents in the final battle of wits, which lasted three intense days, and won the first prize. The reward for him was a rather large sum of money that his student life had never dreamed of. After leaving the hall and quickly hiding from the camera lights of the press, he entered the parking lot to leave. Suddenly a woman approached him. She choked: - Uncle, Congratulations uncle, it is an honor for you to have won the first prize in this difficult competition. I have something to tell you, but I don't know if it's convenient. If you have small children you will understand what I am about to say. My child is suffering from serious cancer lying in the hospital, if not for such a large sum of money… - How much do you need? - The student looked at her and asked with genuine sympathy. After listening to the woman tell the whole story, he immediately pulled out the envelope containing the reward money and gave it all to her. - Pray for your son to get through the danger. Go back and take care of her right away. - I said. - Thank you, I don't know what I have to repay you. Then the woman with an emotional expression walked out the gate. A few days later he had the opportunity to return to school. A person who saw it came up to me and asked: - Someone told me that you met a woman the night before after the contest and you gave her money to treat her dying child, right? ? The young man nodded in affirmation - Then I have to tell you this news so you know. She's a real scammer. She didn't have any sick children who were dying. You are so trusting! You've been tricked, my friend! A moment of silence, the young man asked again: - Is it true that no child is sick near death? - Right. I guarantee it,' said the man firmly. "Oh, that's the best news I've heard of the day," said the young man. Then he added: - We should celebrate because no child has to die.
