The Train Window
A young man looking out of the train’s window shouted, “Dad, look at the trees! Look how fast they're going past us!”
His father smiled, as a young couple sitting nearby, watched the young man’s childish behavior with pitying curiosity. He suddenly exclaimed again, “Dad, look at the clouds! They're keeping up with us!”
The couple couldn’t resist and asked the father what was wrong with his son, asking if he was mentally-challenged.
The old man smiled and said, “No, I am bringing him home from the hospital, where he has been recovering from eye surgery. You see, my son was born blind and he received new corneas. This is his first adventure in seeing a world that, before, he could only touch, taste, smell, and hear.”
Every person on this planet has a story, so we shouldn't judge anyone before we truly know them. The truth about them might surprise you.
