How often does something simple happen to us and then, in an instant, we use that situation as a way to help others? The following VERY short story gives us a glimpse into the mind of one of the most peace-loving leaders that the world has ever known.

As Gandhi stepped aboard a train one day, one of his shoes slipped off and landed on the track.

He was unable to retrieve it as the train started rolling. To the amazement of his companions, Gandhi calmly took off his other shoe and threw it back along the track to land close to the first shoe.

Asked by a fellow passenger why he did that, Gandhi replied, ‘the poor man who finds the shoe lying on the track will now have a pair he can use.’

What unbelievable compassion he had for others! What about you?
