– What do people save first in an emergency?
At a large round table of friends meeting on New Year’s Eve, this question sparked a lively discussion.
“Checkbook,” one gentleman said.
“Valuable items, valuables,” one of the ladies replied.
– Children! someone else definitely added. And everyone agreed.
In the event of a sudden disaster, everyone would think of children first.
At that moment, the lid of the pressure pot popped open in the kitchen and a cloud of steam flooded the dining room. Within seconds everyone fled, overturning chairs and glasses. With the exception of children who had previously been cherished and now forgotten, they played in the flat on the floor.
End with us when we feed only on our own words and begin to believe in our own talk.
