Inspiring Story :When My Fingers Grow Back ?????

This is a true story which happened in the States. 
A man came out of his home to admire his new truck.
To his puzzlement, his three-year-old son was happily 
hammering dents into the shiny paint.

The man ran to his son, knocked him away, hammered 
the little boy's hands into pulp as punishment.

When the father calmed down, he rushed his son to the hospital. 
Although the doctor tried desperately to save the crushed bones, 
he finally had to amputate the fingers from both the boy's hands.

When the boy woke up from the surgery & saw his 
bandaged stubs, he innocently said, " Daddy, I'm sorry about 
your truck." Then he asked, "but when are my fingers going 
to grow back?"

The father went home & committed suicide.

Lesson to learn from the Story:

Think about the story the next time u see someone spill milk 
at a dinner table or hear a baby crying. Think first before u lose 
your patience with someone u love. 

Trucks can be repaired. Broken bones & hurt feelings often can't.
Too often we fail to recognize the difference between the person 
and the performance.

People make mistakes. We are allowed to make mistakes. 
But the actions we take while in a rage will haunt us forever.
Pause and ponder. Think before you act. Be patient. 
Understand & love.
