I don’t know who wrote it, but I read a story that went something like this:
There was once a blind girl who hated herself and everyone else because she couldn’t see. Everyone, that is, except her boyfriend. She loved him very much and promised that she would marry him if she ever became able to see.
One day a pair of eyes became available and after the surgery she was able to see. It was then she noticed that her boyfriend was blind. She became so angry that she broke up with him.
Later, she received a letter from him. It read: “Please take good care of my eyes.”
That story had a powerful impact on me. I grieved for both of them.
May the girl come to realize that even with her new eyes she remains blind until she learns to see with her heart.
May the boy be blessed with a girl whose heart is as big as his.
