    The Blind Boy

    An insightful story tells of a blind boy who sat on the
    steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up
    a sign that read: "I am blind, please help." However,
    people were tossing very few coins in his hat.

    One man stopped, took a few coins from his pocket, and
    dropped them into the hat. He then picked up the boy's
    sign. He turned it around and wrote some words. Then,
    he set the sign on the walk so that everyone walking by
    would see the new words he had written.

    Soon, people began stopping and crowding around the
    boy. Before long, the hat was filled with coins!

    That afternoon, the man who had changed the sign
    returned to see how his young friend was doing. The boy
    recognized the man's voice and said, "You were the
    man who changed my sign this morning. My hat is
    overflowing with coins. What did you write?"

    The man replied, "I only wrote the truth. I said what
    you said, but I said it in a different way."

    The man had written: "Today is a beautiful day and
    I cannot see it."

    -Steve Brunkhorst


    "Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and
    the blind can see." - Mark Twain
