used vs loved

i dare you to read this. azan, you too.

While a man was polishing his new car,
his 4 yr old son picked up a stone
and scratched lines on the side of the car.

In anger, the man took the child's hand

and hit it many times not realizing
he was using a wrench.

At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers

due to multiple fractures.

When the child saw his father.....

with painful eyes he asked, 'Dad when will my fingers grow back?'

The man was so hurt and speechless;

he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.

Devastated by his own actions......

sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches;

the child had written
'LOVE YOU DAD'.
The next day that man committed suicide. . .

__________________

Anger and Love have no limits;

choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life
& remember this:
Things are to be used and people are to be loved.
The problem in today's world is

that people are used while things are loved.

Let's try always to keep this thought in mind:
Things are to be used,
People are to be loved.


Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character;
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

I'm glad my mom forwarded this email to me as a reminder..
