THE RABBIT, THE FOX, THESQUIRREL AND THEFRIENDSHIP
Once upon a time, there was a rabbitwho was living in a big, beautifulforest with his family and his friends.
A few weeks later, it was the Spring Festival’s time in the forest, and there wouldbe many activities during this festival. One of them would be the running race,and the Rabbit was very eager to participate in this contest, because he was veryinterested in sport especially in running and would be very happy if he could take
So, he made all his preparation for this, heate a balanced diet, he did his training, hebecame careful about his sleeping time etc.As the contest date was getting closer, theRabbit’s excitement was getting higher.
In the evening before the running race, hisfather talked to him and said that he should be relaxed first of all, and keep inmind that it is only a game. So, he said “We can sometimes be the winner of agame and sometimes be the loser, so to win a race is not the most important thingin the world and there are some others to be considered, don’t forget my dearson”.
Now it was the contest day. Everything and everybody was ready for the race. TheRabbit was going to race with the Squirrel, and the Fox. The race has started, theSquirrel and the Rabbit was in close distance to each other and the Fox wasfollowing to them. The race was very exciting and it was near to finish.
But suddenly an unexpected thing happened; while turning the last curve, TheSquirrel stumbled and fell down to the ground. He started to cry, because his wholebody was in great pain and he could not move himself in anyway. So, he shouted anasked for help while crying: “Please help me, I cannot stand up, please help!”. TheFox heard the Squirrel, but he did not do anything when he got closed to him andcontinued to running, because he thought that he must take the cup no matter whathappens.
The Rabbit was near to the finish part and when he heard the Squirrel screams heremembered what his father told him the day before, “to win a race was not themost important thing in the world, there are some others....”, “Yes, it is friendship,friendship is more important than being the winner of a race” he thought and heright away went to the Squirrel, and helped him to stand up.
The Squirrel thanked to the Rabbit for his self-sacrificing behaviour, and theRabbit was very pleased to help his friend when he is in need. All animalsappreciated the Rabbit, and the race committee decide to give him an Honour Cupfor his gentle behaviour. As for the Fox, he finished the race and succeeded to getthe cup, but all animals blamed him for his thoughtless behaviour and did not talkto him after the race.
THE ENDMORAL: TO WIN OR TO LOSE IS NOT THE ONLYTHING IN THE LIFE, BUT THE FRIENDSHIP AND BEING HELPFUL TO OTHERS.
