Story corner: Life is an echo

Once upon a time there was a small boy called Peter. Peter and his dad both loved camping. They would get away from home and go to different camping spots.

Once upon a time there was a small boy called Peter. Peter and his dad both loved camping. They would get away from home and go to different camping spots.

One day Peter and his dad went hiking on a certain mountain. They had not gone far along the mountain when suddenly, Peter fell and hurt himself.

“AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!” he screamed. To his surprise, he heard another voice somewhere in the mountain repeating,   “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”

Still surprised Peter curiously yelled, “Who are you?” Again the same voice repeated his words, “Who are you?” Then peter decided to yell something a little bit different.

“I admire you!” The same voice answered, “I admire you!”
Angered at the response, he screamed, “Coward!” But he received the same answer, “Coward!”

This really freaked him out! So he decided to hurry and catch up with his father. Maybe he had answers to what was going on. He looked at his father and asked, “What’s going on, is there someone else with us?”

His father smiled and replied, “My son, pay attention and listen carefully”.

“You are a champion!” Peter’s father screamed. The voice answered, “You are a champion!”

Peter was really surprised but he still did not understand what was going on. His father then explained to him, “People call this ‘echo’, but really this is life.

It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions. If you want more love in the world, learn to love the people around you. Life will give you back everything you have given to it.”

Ends
