.::Carved In Stone::.

There is a story round on the internet about two friends who were walking through the desert.  During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face.  

The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, he bent down and wrote in the sand:
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.

They kept on walking until they found an abandoned oasis.  However, there was a little pool so they decided to take a bath.

The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and began to drown, but the friend saved him.  After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone:
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.

The friend who had slapped and later saved his best friend asked him, "After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone.  Why the difference?"

The friend replied, "When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away.  But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it on stone where no wind can ever erase it"
