You probably don’t have much time, but I ask for just a few seconds to read this fable.
I’m not asking for money or any financial support. I am just inviting you to read and think about the moral of this story.
The peacock and the Crow
A crow is drinking some water from a lake when a peacock shows up. “Everyone look at me!” says the peacock. “Look at my feathers! They are colorful and brilliant. I am so beautiful! I am magnificent!”
“Are you still admiring yourself?” asks the crow.
“Of course, my friend. I have golden, purple, and blue feathers,” says the peacock. “Aren’t they pretty?”
“Sure they are,” answers the crow. “But why do you have to show off everyday? People are getting tire of you!”
“People envy me! Says the peacock. “Look at you. You are so very, very black. You don’t even have a bit of color on your wings. And you are ugly, too!’
“You’re right, peacock,” says the crow. “But there’s one thing an ugly black crow can do, but you can’t.”
“And what is that?” asks the peacock.
“I can go up to the sky and talk to the stars. I can fly, peacock!”
MORAL: Everyone is special in his or her own way.
