Understanding the Concept of Sacrifice...

Excerpt from the article about a 9-year old Japanese boy who gave despite losing everything...

"The boy took my food and bowed. I thought he would eat it right away, but he didn't. He took the bag of food, went up to where the line ended and put it where all the food was waiting to be distributed.

"I was shocked. I asked him why he didn't eat it and instead added it to the food pile. He answered: 'Because I see a lot more people hungrier than I am. If I put it there, then they will distribute the food equally.'

"When I heard that I turned away so that people wouldn't see me cry.

"A society that can produce a 9-year-old who understands the concept of sacrifice for the greater good must be a great society, a great people."
