Simple Gratitude

Read this from an email and decided to share. :)

An old man was sitting with his 25 years old son in a train. The train was about to leave the station. All the passengers were settling down into their seats. As the train started the young man was filled with joy and curiosity. He was sitting on the window side. He put his hand out of the window to feel the passing wind. He shouted, "Papa see all the trees are moving past us.” The old man smiled and acknowledged his son’s feelings.

A couple, who was sitting beside the young man, listened to the conversations between the father and son. They felt a little awkward with the child-like behaviour of the 25-year old man.
Again the young man shouted, "Papa, see the pond and animals. Clouds are moving with the train". The couple again felt embarrassed with the young man’s behaviour. It started to rain and the rain drops touched the young man's hand. He was filled with joy and he closed his eyes. He shouted again, "Papa it's raining, water is touching me."
The couple couldn't help themselves and asked the old man, “Why don't you visit the doctor and get your son treated.” The old man replied, *"Yes, we just came from the hospital. Today my son got his eyes for the first time in his life."

Moral of the story is; we must not come to any conclusion until we know all the facts
