An elementary school teacher ended the day with a homework assignment which was an essay with the subject of “who’s the bravest?”
He asked all of the students to have their essays ready to present to the entire class the following day. The teacher emphasized that there would be a grand prize for the best essay.
The next day, all of the students were excited and hoped to win the prize. The teacher was thrilled to hear what their pure minds brought on paper.
The first essay was about how brave a diver is to go deep into the dark scary ocean even though they might get attacked by sharks.
The next one wrote about the brave rock climbers who defeat all the danger to get to the peak.
Another one felt like the bravest are the campers who stay in forests alone with all the wild animals surrounding them.
All of the twenty-four students read their essays one by one and talked about who they thought was the bravest.
Among all of the essays, only one got the prize and that was:
“I think the bravest person is a kid who introduces his parents to all his friends and society with pride even though their jobs are collecting garbage,
cleaning toilets, washing dishes, sweeping floors,
and many more. He knows that they work hard for him to live better and be loved and safe.
These brave kids are thankful to have parents who support them and love them. And
I believe the bravest one are fathers and mothers who do those jobs just to keep a roof on their family’s head, feed them, love them and send them to school
to be someone special someday so that they wouldn’t have to live and work like them. These parents raise great kids to build a great society.
I definitely see them as the bravest.”
