A story is told of a Monkey who clapped it’s hands as it watched the Elephant and Hippo fighting. One of the legs of the Hippo was eventually broken and he was taken to the medicine man. The Medicine man said he needed the veins of the Monkey to prepare the medicine. When the Monkey was caught and told the reason it sadly said, “I would have reconciled them if I had known that the conflict would eventually affect me. ” It was too late for the Monkey.
Morale of the Story: Every crisis you see or hear about, close or far away, will one day affect you too. Use your opportunities well. Don’t fuel the fire, be a solution. You may also cry one day if you don’t be of help today.
