Blind Love

Another piece of story from Toun in Port Harcourt.

"There was a blind girl who hated herself just because she's blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He's always there for her. She said that if she could only see the world, she would marry her boyfriend.

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her and then, she can see everything, including her boyfriend. Her boyfriend asked her, "now that you can see the world, will you marry me?"

The girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend is blind too, and refused to marry him. Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later wrote a letter to her saying. "Just take care of my eyes, dear."

This is how humans change when their status changes. Only few remember what life was before, and who has always been there in the most painful situations.

Today before you before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another, remember that not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one Maker."

Dear Philomina,

This is a real food for thought. If only we will take the message buried in your story. Thank you for the message.
