Once upon a time there was a little boy who had always wanted to fly like a bird. He was raised in an orphanage. He could never understand why it was impossible for him to fly. “Is there anything wrong with me?” he used to wonder. There was another little boy who was crippled. He had always wished that he could walk and run like other little boys and girls. “Why can’t I be like them?” he thought.
One day the poor little orphan boy ran away from the orphanage. He came upon a park where he saw the crippled boy playing in the sandbox. He ran over to the crippled boy and asked him if he had ever wanted to fly like a bird.
“No,” said the little boy who could not walk or run. “But I have wondered what it would be like to walk and run like other boys and girls.”
“That is very sad,” said the orphan boy. “Do you think we could be friends?” he asked the little boy in the sandbox.
“Sure,” said the little boy.
The two little boys played for hours. Then the little boy’s father came with a wheelchair to pick up his son. The little boy who had always wanted to fly ran over to the boy’s father and whispered something into his ear.
“That would be OK,” said the man.
The orphan boy ran over to his new friend and said, “You are my only friend and I wish there was something that I could do to make you walk and run like other little boys and girls. But I can’t. But there is something that I can do for you.”
The little orphan boy turned around and told his new friend to slide up onto his back. He then began to run across the grass. Faster and faster he ran, carrying the little crippled boy on his back. Faster and harder he ran across the park. Harder and harder he made his legs travel.
The little boy’s father began to cry as he watched his beautiful little crippled son flapping his arms up and down in the wind, all the while yelling at the top of his voice,
“I’M FLYING, DADDY. I’M FLYING!”
Sometimes all it takes to make a difference is a heart that can feel.
