Value of Values


A beautiful story share that tugs your heartstrings.

Remember Kenyan runner Abel Mutai who was just a few feet from the finish line, but became confused with the signage and stopped, thinking he had completed the race. Spanish runner, Ivan Fernandez, was right behind him and, realizing what was happening, started shouting at the Kenyan to continue running. Mutai didn’t know Spanish and didn’t understand. Realizing what was taking place, Fernandez pushed Mutai to victory.

A journalist asked Ivan, “Why did you do that?” Ivan replied, “My dream is that someday we can have a kind of community life where we push and help each other to win.”
The journalist insisted “But why did you let the Kenyan win?” Ivan replied, “I didn’t let him win, he was going to win. The race was his.” The journalist insisted, and again asked, “But you could have won!” Ivan looked at him and replied, “But what would be the merit of my victory? What would be the honor in that medal?
What would my Mother think of that?”

Values are passed on from generation to generation.

    • Yes indeed… I truly enjoy reading your comments, it is as if you are speaking my heartfelt words many a times …. a lovely way to be!

      If we actually choose to delve deeper there is compersion in every being… its simply often submerged in the many protective layers of our being… that we choose to assert from… than simply being heartful .

      Blissful blessings for the day for one and all😊
