Best Friends Stranded On An Island
My best friend and I were stranded on an island. Pushed to our limits we ended up in a fight and I ended up smacking my friend across the face and knocking him down.
While he was down he wrote in the sand, "Today my best friend smacked me."
My friend recovered and later on that day took a swim in the ocean - where he started to drown. I jumped into the sea and saved him. My friend, looked for the biggest rock he could find and carved out the following words, "Today my best friend saved my life."
I had to ask my friend, "Why before in the sand and now on a rock?" This is what he said to me, which I will never forget...
"Because writing it in the sand means it can be erased and washed away into the water and forgotten; but when you saved my life I carved it on a rock so that the water, nor anything else, could erase it. Because it is not meant to be forgotten, or erased."
