inspirational short stories for kids
Abraham Lincoln became the president of America, his father was a shoemaker. Some egoistic people were very much offended that a shoe maker’s son became a president. They were aristocratic, who believed it was their birthright to be in the highest govt post. On the first day when Lincoln entered his engoral address- a man stood up and told ” Mr. Lincon. you should not forget that your father used to make shoes for my family” and the whole senate laughed. Lincon looked at the man and said patiently ” sir, I know this fact and there will be many others here- because the way he made shoes, nobody else can. He was a creator. His shoes were not just shoes but he poured his whole soul into it. Any complaint? Nobody has ever complained about my father’s shoes. Believe it, he was a genius, a great creator- and I am proud of my father.
The whole senate was struck dumb. He had made shoes making an art, a creativity and he was proud of the creativity. Even though he was the president of America, he was ready to make a pair of shoe, if there were any complaint. looking at the silly man, Lincon insisted “now you have to speak, why have you become dumb? just minutes before you wanted to make me a fool but look all around, you have made a fool of yourself”
Moral-Every work has its importance so it doesn’t matter what you do, what matters is how you do it with your own accord, love, and vision.
