If we have the heart to help, the power of love never dies

A man was driving along a rural highway one late evening when he spotted an old lady stranded with her car on the side of the road. Wondering if she was in trouble, he stopped his car. As he walked out of his car and approached her, he could sense a mixed feeling of relief and nervousness on her face. She felt relieved because at least she had somebody to seek help from but she was also nervous and afraid that the man might harm her. But as he got closer, he called out “Hello, I am Brian and I am here to help you.” The old lady instantly glowed with a broad smile and thanked him for his kindness. She told him that she had a flat tire and that she had no idea how to change it. The man got under her car, removed the flat tire and replaced it with the spare one. The grease and dusts made his hands dirty and he even injured his finger while tightening the wheel-nuts. After fixing the tire, the lady thanked him and asked him “How much do I owe you for the work?” The man smiled and said “You don’t owe me anything. If you really wish to pay me, just help somebody else in your life just as I have helped you today” said the man as he drove away.

What's happening to the extra time that modern technologies give us everyday?

In the past when we did not have any technology to ease our life, we had to do everything manually. We had to be always busy because we had to be everywhere physically to get our jobs done. Even to visit the nearest town and to get back home, we had to walk for days and weeks on foot or horses. During those days, it made sense when people said they were busy all the time. Nevertheless, they still had time for social and family events in the community.

After five months of disciplined life under the supervision of school management, this is the time for them to relax and have fun with their loved ones. They will often be hanging out with friends, exploring every nook and corner of towns and streets. As a result, there are also risks that they might cross their boundaries and get into problems.
