The moral of my story,I read as a child is: “A friend in need is a friend in deed”. I will write the story as I remember it.Two friends were walking in the forest one day.Suddenly they saw a bear coming towards them,one of them quickly climbed the tree and looked down.Not knowing what to do,the other friend thought it wise to lie down on the ground and pretend to be dead.The bear came and started sniffing,thinking the man was dead,it left him untouched.It seems bears don’t eat dead people. When the bear left,the man on the tree jumped down and asked his friend, “What did the bear tell you in your ears”? Without wasting any time he said,”Oh the bear said be careful who you consider to be your friend”.
Since then I knew it was a good lesson for a child to learn and if I have a friend,I should do everything possible to help him/her. I do help whenever I can. Even today I do what I can to help a friend.
