A Small Act Of Kindness Can Bring Smile On Million Faces

One day a school teacher wrote on the board the following:

9×1=7

9×2=18

9×3=27

9×4=36

9×5=45

9×6=54

9×7=63

9×8=72

9×9=81

9×10=90
When she was done, she looked to the students and they were all laughing at her, because of the first equation which was wrong, and then the teacher said the following,
“I wrote that first one wrong on purpose, because I wanted you to learn something important. This was for you to know how the world out there will treat you. You can see that I wrote RIGHT 9 times, but none of you congratulated me for it; you all laughed and criticized me because of one wrong thing I did. So this is the lesson…:
‘The world will never appreciate the good you do a million times, but will criticize the one wrong thing you do… 
But don’t get discouraged, ALWAYS RISE ABOVE ALL THE LAUGHTER AND CRITICISM…

The Touch

The sudden commotion
Made her the center of attention
As several voices uttered suggestions
On how to revive her.

An ice pack made its way
To her upheld head
Via the nervous hands
Of the cafe owner.

He did not expect
A simple sign and $50 dollars
Would lead to all this mayhem!
“An ambulance is on the way!”

The handsome gentleman,
In whose hands her head rested,
Was concerned that he was the cause
Of her current dilemma.

His gentle face wore a furrowed brow
While his kind eyes searched her face
For signs of revival but there were none.
“It wasn’t supposed to be like this! “

As the cafe owner
Continued to hold the ice pack in place,
The handsome gentleman
Gently brushed the tossled hair from her face.

His fingertips gently caressed her cheeks,
Outlined her dimpled chin,
Traced the bridge of her tiny nose,
Then circled her lips.

Cafe owner:
Sir, do you know this woman?

Handsome gentleman:
No, not really.
We met once in passing,
But I don’t really know who she is.
The sign out front was meant for me.
She wanted to meet me again…

At those words, a mumble traveled
Through the gathered crowd.
It’s him! He’s the one!
It’s her. She’s the one who left the sign!”

He took her hand and kissed it.
Then once again caressed her flushed cheeks,
Hoping to see her beautiful lips smile again
Like they did when she and he first met.

Suddenly, her eyes began to open.
Her hand reached for her head.
She winced in pain.
She had fallen pretty hard.

Confused, her eyes scanned
The circle of faces gathered around her,
Then found their resting place
Locked to his in time and space.

“What’s going on? Oh my gosh, did I faint?”
The handsome gentleman smiled,
“Yes you did, my fair lady, but it’s ok,
I never left your side”.
