Gift of Life

A Compilation of Inspirational Stories and Anecdotes

22. The Precious Gift (Help to those alive, is the best way to remember the dead)

This is a touching story about a bus that was bumping along a back road in the south of India.

In one seat an old man sat holding a bunch of fresh flowers. Across the aisle was a young girl whose eyes came back again and again to the manís flowers. The time came for the old man to get off. Impulsively he thrust the flowers into the girlís lap.

"I can see you love the flowers," he explained, " and I think my wife would like you to have them. Iíll tell her I gave them to you."

The girl accepted the flowers, then watched the old man get off the bus and walk through the gate of a small cemetery.
