“Maybe you’re wondering why people bother telling stories. They’re just for kids, aren’t they? No, stories are for all people of all ages. If you read a traditional story carefully there are lessons to be learned from it. Some lessons we already know, but sometimes forget. Like being kind to those less fortunate than ourselves, or that love is truly the most important reason for us all to be here. Other stories warn us of the consequences of our actions on ourselves and others. Each story has at least one, and most of the times many, morals. Even a story you have read many times may hold yet another gem of a lesson for you to learn later, down the road. All people of all walks of life have stories, and most all of them contain lessons to be learned or remembered.
