Love, Son.

While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 year old son picked stone and scratched lines on the side of the car.
In anger, the man took the child's hand & hit it many times, not realizing he was using an iron 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? Man was so hurt and speechless. He went back to car and kicked it a lot of times.

Devastated by his own actions....... sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches, child had written
'LOVE YOU DAD'. The next day that man committed suicide....

Anger and Love have NO LIMIT - choose the latter to have a beautiful & lovely life....THINGS are meant to be USED and PEOPLE are to be LOVED,
...but the problem of today's world is that....People are used & Things are loved!!!

"AAaahhh!! you sure say na im pikin???  with a wrench???" Were my first thouhghts on the matter but the situation was more critical than that. This man beat up his son because the child Mutilated his "precious" ride.

 ...life's short...funny thing's we don't realize it until something happens to trigger awareness...i was really hit by the harsh reality that we use what we should love and love what we should be using....a very disturbing reality!

We're so caught up in the madness of making money and making an impression, we forget that the important things in our lives- friends, family, God (Whatever you conceive him to be...)...We really can't afford to get caught up in the things in our lives so much that we forget that in the final analysis, it is the people in our lives that count.

@kay9: so that justifies why he should hit the boy so hard that he lost his fingers abi?? it was just a car, nothing that cldnt be fixed. Just saying.
This is such a sad story....too manyb times we forget the important things in life, love, laughter and the likes. I hope i never forget these things.
