    Horror gripped the heart of a World War-I soldier, as he saw his lifelong
    friend fall in battle. The soldier asked his Lieutenant if he could go out
    to bring his fallen comrade back. "You can go," said the Lieutenant, "but
    don't think it will be worth it. Your friend is probably dead and you may
    throw your life away. The Lieutenant's words didn't matter, and the
    soldier went anyway. Miraculously, he managed to reach his friend, hoisted
    him onto his shoulder and brought him back to their company's trench. The
    officer checked the wounded soldier, and then looked kindly at his friend.

    "I told you it wouldn't be worth it," he said. "Your friend is dead and
    you are mortally wounded." "It was worth it, Sir," said the soldier.
    "What do you mean by worth it?" responded the Lieutenant. "Your friend is
    dead." "Yes Sir," the soldier answered," but it was worth it because when
    I got to him, he was still alive and I had the satisfaction of hearing him
    say...."Jim...I knew you'd come."

    Many times in life, whether a thing is worth doing or not, really depends
    on how u look at it. Take up all your courage and do something your heart
    tells you to do so that you may not regret not doing it later in your

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
