  • 1. Sometimes It Takes a Brick
  • 2. A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar.
  • 3. He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something.
  • 4. As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door.
  • 5. He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to spot where the brick had been thrown.
  • 6. The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against a parked car shouting,
  • 7. 'What was that all about and who are you? Just what the heck are you doing? That's a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why did you do it?'
  • 8. The young boy was apologetic. 'Please, mister...please, I'm sorry but I didn't know what else to do.' He Pleaded.
  • 9. 'I threw the brick because no one else would stop...'
  • 10. With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a spot around a parked car.
  • 11. 'It's my brother, 'he said. 'He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up.'
  • 12. Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive,' would you help me get him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and to heavy for me.'
  • 13. Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly sweeling lump in his throat.
  • 14. He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out a linen hankerchief and dabbed at the fresh scrapes and cuts.
  • 15. A quick look told him everything was going to be okay.
  • 16. 'Thank you and may God bless you,' the grateful child told the stranger.
  • 17. Too shook up for words, the man simply watched the the boy push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home.
  • 18. It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar.
  • 19. The damage was very noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the dented side door.
  • 20. He kept the dent there to remind him of this message. ' Don't go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick to get your attention!'
  • 21. God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts.
  • 22. Sometimes when we don't have time to listen. He has to throw a brick at us. It's our choice to listen or not.
  • 23. Have a Nice Day!
