A young and successful executive was travelling down a neighbourhood
street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids
darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw
As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into
the Jag's side door! He slammed on the brakes and drove the Jag back to the
spot where the brick had been thrown. The angry driver then jumped out of
the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against a parked car,
shouting, 'What was that all about and who are you? Just what the heck are
you doing? That's a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot
of money. Why did you do it?'
The young boy was apologetic, 'Please mister ... please, I'm sorry... I
didn't know what else to do,' he pleaded. 'I threw the brick because no one
else would stop...'
With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to
a spot just around a parked car. 'It's my brother,' he said. 'He rolled off
the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up.' Now
sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, 'Would you please help me get
him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and he's too heavy for me.'
Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump
in his throat. He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the
wheelchair, then took out his fancy handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh
scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything was going to be okay.
'Thank you and may God bless you,' the grateful child told the stranger.
Too shaken up for words, the man simply watched the little boy push his
wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home. It was a long,
slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very noticeable, but the driver
never bothered to repair the dented side door. He kept the dent there to
remind him of this message: Don't go through life so fast that someone has
to throw a brick at you to get your attention!
God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we
don't have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us.

An Italian surgeon finished a brain operation on a patient: despite
suffering a heart attack.
Doctor Claudio Vitale, 59, realised his patient would never recover if he
stopped the operation to seek treatment for himself. So he carried on for 30
minutes in the operating theatre at Cardarelli hospital, Naples, Italy,
until his patient was out of trouble.
Now both the surgeon and his patient are recovering in the hospital's
intensive care unit. 'I knew I couldn't leave the surgery then. I'm not
really a hero, I just did my job,' said Dr Vitale.
Will and Guy have decided that he is a hero and we feel sure that his
patient does also.
