A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He
held up a sign which said: "I am blind, please help." There were only
a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped
them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote
some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would
see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to
the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to
see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, "Were
u the one who changed my sign this morning? What did u write?"

The man said, "I only wrote the truth. I said what u said but in a
different way."
What he had written was: "Today is a beautiful day & I cannot see it."

Do u think the first sign & the second sign were saying the same
thing? Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the
first sign simply told people to help by putting some money in the
hat.

The second sign told people that they were able to enjoy the beauty of
the day, but the boy could not enjoy it because he was blind.

The first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told
people they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be
surprised that the second sign was more effective?

enjoy.........
