A few years ago at the Seattle Special Olympics, nine contestants, all physically or mentally disabled, assembled at the starting line for the 100 yard sprint. At the sound of the whistle, they all started out, not exactly in a dash, but with a relish to run the race to the finish and win. All, that is, except one boy who stumbled, and unable to stay on his feet fell to the ground and began to cry.
The other eight heard the boy. They slowed down and looked back. They all turned around and went back. Every single one of them. One girl with Down’s Syndrome bent down and kissed him and said, “This will make it better.” All nine competitors linked arms and walked across the finish line together. Everyone in the stadium stood, in total awe of the kindness the children displayed. The cheering and applause went on for several minutes.
It’s not always about coming first but that sometimes helping others gives an immense amount of satisfaction. “Allah will aid a servant (of His) so long as the servant aids his brother.”
This story totally inspired me :) Are you with me?
Kemaruk ayat-ayat cinta, but it's so so true:)
