Assignment 1: A Miracle

Good morning students. I’d like to share a true story with you, which illustrates the true meaning of the word “miracle”. After you have read the story, please comment on it, and then write a story on your blog . Your story can define a word or relate a personal experience that taught you something.

Many years ago a very young girl had a brother who was very sick. He had a brain tumor and needed an operation immediately or he would die. One day, the young girl overheard her mother tell her father that the only thing that could save their sick son was a miracle. Being only five years old, she did not comprehend the full meaning of the word “miracle”. She assumed it was a kind of medicine. The young girl decided to take matters into her own hands and help her dying brother. She gathered her savings of one dollar and seventy-five cents from her Elma Fudd piggy bank, and went to the neighborhood drugstore. She approached the druggist who was busy talking to his brother, who had just arrived from out of town. The Little girl politely interrupted their conversation and asked to purchase some miracle for her dying brother. Touched by the young girl’s innocence and sincerity, the druggist’s brother accompanied her home. After hearing the details from the young child’s parents, he introduced himself and said that he would help. The druggist’s brother was in fact a world-renowned brain surgeon. A week later, he performed the operation and saved the dying boy’s life. His only payment was the joy of giving the young girl a miracle.
