Power of words – a blind beggar story

It’s about the story of the Blind Man. One day, there was a blind man sitting on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet and a sign that read:

‘I AM BLIND, PLEASE HELP’


A Coach was walking by and stopped to observe.

He saw that the blind man had only a few coins in his hat.

He dropped in more coins and, asked for permission to change the sign, the Coach then took the sign and added three words.

He returned the sign to the blind man and left.

That afternoon the Coach returned to the blind man and noticed that his hat was full of coins.

The blind man recognized his footsteps and asked if it was he who had rewritten his sign and wanted to know what he had written on it.

The Coach responded:

“Nothing, I just wrote the message a little differently.”

He smiled and went on his way.

The new sign read:

‘IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY AND I CAN’T SEE IT’

 

Moral of the story
