My first

Was reminded of this little story when i read (Heavenly_)'s blog.

I heard this from a priest at mass one time, so it must be true.

A little boy (Sam) returned home from school one day wearing a different coat from the one he left with.

His parents puzzled asked him about it. The boy replied that he took this coat from Jimmy, another boy at the school, because he couldn't find his.

The parents, naturally worried and concerned wanted to return the coat to Jimmy as soon as possible, quizzed Sam about Jimmy, who he was? where did he live? what did he look like as so forth?

Sam actually knew very little about Jimmy, just that he had Brown eyes and curly hair. So the parents decided to leave it until the morning and return the coat to Jimmy at school.

The next morning Sam and his parents arrived at school early, waiting for Sam to recognise Jimmy.

After a short while Sam spotted Jimmy and to the parents surprised they noticed Jimmy was coloured, in fact the only coloured child at the school. Sam only noticed Jimmy because of his curly hair and Brown eyes.

The priest concluded on how our minds do become polluted when we get older and sometimes we should look at things as simple as a child can see them.
