Many times in life, whether a thing is worth doing or not, really depends on how you look at it. Take up all your courage and do something your heart tells you to do so that you may not regret not doing it later in your life...
This is a true story.
Let the spirit of friendship in us not die.I guess this was something worth doing. But then, judge for yourselves;
Horror gripped the heart of a World War-I soldier, as
he saw his lifelong friend fall in battle. The soldier
asked his Lieutenant if he could go out to bring his
fallen comrade back.
"You can go," said the Lieutenant," but don't think it
will be worth it. Your friend is probably dead and
you may throw your life away. "The Lieutenant's words
didn't matter, and the soldier went anyway.
Miraculously, he managed to reach his friend, hoisted
him onto his shoulder and brought him back to their
company's trench. The officer checked the wounded
soldier, then looked kindly at his friend.
"I told you it wouldn't be worth it," he said. "Your
friend is dead and you are mortally wounded."
"It was worth it, Sir," said the soldier. "What do you
mean by worth it?" responded the lieutenant.
"Your friend is dead."
"Yes Sir," the soldier answered, "But it was worth it
because when I got to him, he was still alive and I
had the satisfaction of hearing him say...."Jim...I
knew you'd come."
Now don't you agree?
