One daya rabbit was
boasting about how fast he could run. He was laughing at the turtle for being
so slow. Much to the rabbit’s surprise, the turtlechallenged
him to a race. The rabbitthought this was a good joke and accepted the
challenge. The fox was to be the umpire of the race. As the race began, the
rabbit raced way ahead of the turtle, just like everyone thought.
Complication : The rabbit got to the halfway point and could not
see the turtle anywhere. He was hot and tired and decided to stop and take a
short nap. All this time the turtle kept walking step by step by step. He never
quit no matter how hot or tired he got. He just kept going.
Resolution : However, the rabbit slept longer than he had thought
and woke up. He could not see the turtle anywhere! He went at full-speed to the
finish line but found the turtle therewaiting for him.
Moral Value : Never underestimate the weakest opponent.
