    Holy ****. This has to be the most necro thread I've ever seen. Out of the 2000s. Bravo.

    This thread is older than most kids in high school.

    A story is told about a clerk who was finally coming home after completing medical school. He called his parents from Prague. “Mom and Dad, I’m coming home, but I’ve a favor to ask. I have a friend I’d like to bring home with me. “Sure,” they replied, “we’d love to meet him.”

    “There’s something you should know,” the son continued, “he awoke one morning from uneasy dreams to find himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect. He has nowhere else to go, and I want him to come live with us.”
    “I’m sorry to hear that, son. Maybe we can help him find somewhere to live.”
    “No, Mom and Dad, I want him to live with us.”

    “Son,” said the father, “you don’t know what you’re asking. Someone with such a handicap would be a terrible burden on us. We have our own lives to live, and we can’t let something like this interfere with our lives. I think you should just come home and forget about this guy. He’ll find a way to live on his own.”

    At that point, the son hung up the phone. The parents heard nothing more from him. A few days later, however, they received a call from the Prague police. Their son had died from starvation, they were told. The police believed it was suicide.

    The grief-stricken parents flew to Prague and were taken to the city morgue to identify the body of their son. They recognized him, but to their horror they also discovered something they didn’t know, their son had transformed into a gigantic insect.


    Moral: The parents in this story are like many of us. We find it easy to love those who are good-looking or fun to have around, but we don’t like people who inconvenience us or make us feel uncomfortable. We would rather stay away from people who aren’t as healthy, beautiful, or smart as we are. Thankfully, there’s someone who won’t treat us that way. Someone who loves us with an unconditional love that welcomes us into the forever family, regardless of how messed up we are. Tonight, before you tuck yourself in for the night, say a little prayer that God will give you the strength you need to accept people as they are, and to help us all be more understanding of those who are different from us!

    Like this if you cry everytime.
