Story of Joe and Charlie


Joe and Charlie. They are friends. One day they were vacationing at a beach. For some reason they suddenly quarrel and finally Joe slapped Charlie’s face. Charlie was shocked and stunned. He was very upset and hurt. Without saying any words, he wrote something on the beach sands “Today my best friend slapped my face!! “

A few moments later, they were walking along the beach. And… Something happened!! They do not know that there is a quicksand on that beach area. Worse, Charlie stuck and sinking into the quicksand.  Joe was shocked and panicked. But then he’s trying hard to pull out the Charlie’s body that is almost completely drowned. He kept trying with a vengeance to save Charlie’s life.

Joe successfully rescues Charlie from that awful quicksand!!          

After a while, after Charlie was recovers, He looking for a big tree in that beach area, and after finding a tree, he wrote something in the tree. “Today my best friend saved my life!!

Joe was confused to see what Charlie did.  He immediately asked, “After I slapped you. You wrote in the sand and now you write on a tree. What does that mean?” 

Charlie smiled and replied, ” When someone hurts us we should write it down in the sand so that words immediately washed away and we were over lock it quickly. But when someone does something good for us, we had to carve on a tree so that is not easily carried away by water or wind. And we will always remember that kindness. Dear friend, today you saved my life and I will never forget your kindness ”

Let us learn to forget the pain and always keep in our minds the wonderful memories of our lives
