One day of my holiday I was playing with a ball in the park with a few colleagues. We were joy and noisy and we were all happy because we were together.
Ionut had thrown the ball too far from our reach. We all started calling down on him that he had done that.
Meantime, a child came closer bringing the ball. He was different for us, having disheveled clothes, dirty hands and face and deranged hair. With a warm smile ha asked:
“Can I play with you?”
We were looking at him amazed .Most of the group started saying:
“Go away! Leave us alone! Give us the ball and leave!”
Then Carina, our colleague said:
“Stop that! What is wrong with you? First we should thank him for bringing the ball. Secondly, have you forgotten the lesson our teacher taught us? Let's be tolerant and accept him in our game.”
Curious was the fact that we were all feeling much better knowing that we made that child a favour.
Heading home I was still thinking at what happened in the park. At the tolerance lesson Carina offered us.
Then I understood how much being tolerant means and how many problems from our world could solve if people wouldn't forget to be tolerant, if they would understand that something which hasn't got much importance for you for someone else it would be the most important thing.
