Nails in the Boards

Nails in the Boards
-(Laugh and Wisdom Story for Educators)-

This is a story that being told to me many times. First, I read it in my high school magazine - and then in a book written by Anthony de Mello. I really love this story and told to my daughter many times...

A kid named Imam is so naughty... he likes to mock his friends, fighting with other kids and makes older people get angry with his behaviour. Her parents try to tell her that he must behave better, and it makes other people sad when he keeps doing it.

"Imam, we have nails and hammer here. And we have some boards too. Every time you make other people angry, or when you feel angry, you can nail in these boards."

Imam didn't know its meaning but he likes to do this job because he still has believed his parents care for him. 

In the first day, Imam hammered 15 nails. Her father said: "well, we can make a fence too while doing it."

In second day, Imam hammered 18 nails, but it then getting slower because he realize that sometimes he got injury while doing it. It easier to be more patient rather doing this job everyday.

Then there was a day when he hammered no nail. His father told her: "Well done Imam. You hammered nothing this day. From now, you can pull nails every time you can hold your anger, and say or do something nice to people you hurt before."

Imam sometimes still hammered the nails to the board but he is more often pulling the nails. And there was a day when all the nails in the boards are gone. Imam feel very happy when he knows that it means that now he becomes a more patient kid, and have doing all good things to his friends. He talks to her father, "Look father, no more nails in the boards. I become more patient now."

His father answered," Congratulation Imam, well done. I see that you become stronger and wiser now. I really grateful as your father. But come closer can you see the boards?

"Yes father." He answered politely.

"Do you see the holes? You can see that people heart is like a board. When we hurt people, we make a hole in their heart. We can ask for apologize many times, doing many good things for them, but the holes are still left in their heart. Just like a board, we can patch the hole with cement or putty, but the hole is still remain. Be wiser when you are doing something...  people heart is fragile, more than a board."

  1. Now that is a really wonderful story. A really good way to teach the kids. I just hope that environmental awareness training courses were that easy to teach to people. We all tend not to really care much about the environment anymore.

  14. If we’re buying a modern BMW, we’re buying the M2 Comp and never looking back.

    We've been waiting a good little while to get our hands on the 2020 BMW M2 Competition for a proper Pro Racer's Take track test, which might sound a little strange. BMW's little coupe has spent plenty of time the hands of Automobile staffers and testers, including the recent test drive report linked above. We also awarded it a 2019 Automobile All-Stars trophy as one of the year's best cars. So, you might wonder, what's the big deal?

    For starters, we always want to see what our in-house professional driver Andy Pilgrim can do with any car we test on the fast, daunting NCM Motorsports Park Road Course in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Ultimately, it provides a no-speeds-barred look at what something like the 2020 BMW M2 Competition can do when tested to its absolute limits. On top of that, we've previously enjoyed the M2 Competition so much, we don't believe you can ever get enough exposure to the overall goodness a car like this provides, both to actual owners and to enthusiasts who admire it from afar.

    There's plenty to admire about the 2020 BMW M2 Competition. Some of our previous analyses of the car include glowing statements like:

    "A return to form for the M Division."

    "Immensely satisfying to drive, even back to back against supercars."

    "The BMW that best captures the spirit of the 2002 era more than anything in the marque's stable."

    "Lively rear end, with connected steering that allows consistent corner-entry rotation, apex scraping, and really quick exit speeds. Big smiles, top fun!"

    A lot of the enjoyment derived from driving the 2020 BMW M2 Competition arrives courtesy of its 405-horsepower, 406-lb-ft turbocharged I-6 engine, but there are plenty of other hardware upgrades compared to the standard M2 it has replaced in BMW's M-car lineup. Along with the engine, they include larger air intakes, bigger brakes, different spring and damper rates, and more chassis reinforcements, resulting in an incredibly focused modern driver's car.

    Oh, and if you enjoy a bit of drifting "here and there," this test of the 2020 BMW M2 Competition has you covered on that front, too. So hit the Play button now to see the M2 Competition running in all of its fiery glory, and then check our overall Pro Racer's Take leaderboard to see how it stacks up to some of the actual competition we've also put to the test previously. ดูบอลสด
