Soldier, “Mom dad, I am coming home but i have a favor to ask. I have a friend with me whom i want to bring home with me.”
“Sure, We would love to meet him”, they replied.
Then son continued, “there is something you should know about him. He was hurt pretty badly while fighting there. He stepped on land mine because of which he lost his leg and an arm. He have no where else to go and i want him to come and live with us.”
Parents replied, “We are sorry to hear that son. We can help him to find some place to live.”
Son replied, “No Mom Dad i want him to live with us.”
“But Son”, Father said, “You don’t know what you are asking for. Someone with such a handicap would be like burden on us. We have our own live to live. We just cant something like this interfere with our lives. You should just come home and forget about that guy.”

Few days later, Parents got a call from police. Police told them that their son died after falling from building. Police believed that it was suicide. Grief stricken parents flew there and went to city morgue to identify the body. They recognized him..
But, They were shocked to see that their son had one arm and one leg.
We find it easy to Love who look good but don’t like people who can be inconvenience to us. We tend to stay away from people who aren’t as beautiful, smart or Healthy as we are. We should value life whatever condition is because we never know what’s come next.
