A Better Way

  1. 1. THERE IS A WAY The Entertainer By Scott Joplin www.funnybytes.net
  2. 2. A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: www.funnybytes.net
  3. 3. There were only a few coins in the hat. A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. www.funnybytes.net
  4. 4. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by will see the new words. www.funnybytes.net
  5. 5. Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. www.funnybytes.net
  6. 6. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, ”Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?” www.funnybytes.net
  7. 7. The man said, “I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a way.” www.funnybytes.net
  8. 8. What he had written was: quot;Today is a day and I cannot see it.quot; www.funnybytes.net
  9. 9. Do you think the first sign and the second sign were saying the same thing? Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. www.funnybytes.net
  10. 10. But the first sign simply told people to help by putting some money in the hat. The second sign told people that they were able to enjoy the beauty of the day, but the boy could not enjoy it because he was blind. www.funnybytes.net
  11. 11. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective? www.funnybytes.net
  12. 12. There are at least two lessons we can learn from this simple story. www.funnybytes.net
  13. 13. The first is, “Be thankful for what you have. Someone else has less. Help where you can.” www.funnybytes.net
  14. 14. The second is, “Be . Be . Think . THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY!” www.funnybytes.net
  15. 15. www.funnybytes.net
