The Sick Stag


A Stag had fallen sick. He had just strength enough to gather some food and find a quiet clearing in the woods, where he lay down to wait until his strength should return. The Animals heard about the Stag’s illness and came to ask after his health. Of course, they were all hungry, and helped themselves freely to the Stag’s food; and as you would expect, the Stag soon starved to death.

Good will is worth nothing unless it is accompanied by good acts.

Moozie says “Always be kind to others. Extend a kind word and a helping hand when you see some person or animal in danger or suffering if there is not a  risk to yourself, or get someone to help. You may find yourself in such a situation and will appreciate any help you can get.”
