The Other Shoe
We read a story the other day about a man who happened to run into Gandhi on a train. He said that while Gandhi was getting aboard, one of his shoes slipped off and landed on the track. He was unable to retrieve it since the train was already starting to move. To the amazement of those standing around, Gandhi calmly took off his other shoe and threw it back along the track trying to make it land close to the first shoe. Asked by another passenger why he threw out his good shoe, Gandhi smiled and replied, "One shoe will do me no good, so I want to ensure that the man who finds my first shoe will have a pair he can use."
