People are to be Loved

Came across this email forward. Felt it suits our times completely... where are people are used more than loved. Genuine love, affection and respect have made way for getting people to get things done for us. Wanted to share this and make a small difference!

While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 yr old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car.


In anger, the man took the child's hand and hit it many times not realizing he was using a wrench. At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.

When the child saw his father......
with painful eyes he asked, 'Dad when will my fingers grow back?'

The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.
devastated by his own actions...... sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches... the child had written 'LOVE YOU DAD'.

The next day that man committed suicide...

Anger and Love have no limits; choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life & remember this:

Things are to be used and people are to be loved.
The problem in today's world is
that people are used while things are loved.
Let's try always to keep this thought in mind:
Things are to be used,
People are to be loved.

Interesting story, with a very sad ending. I think i can say this after the birth of my daughter that there is nothing more important than spending time with family.
