Now I will tell you a story.
A story about a kind man who would visit five orphans and bring them toys and gladness.
The man lived alone and lived in fear
that someone might break into the house of one of the five children.
So he adopted all five and brought them together in one place, in his own home. He promised them to never leave them and they
promised to always come home and never stay out too late.
He left one day to buy food. His heart being filled with gladness,
but returned to find that the burglar had chosen his home and killed
all five of the children.
The man could only afford one coffin,
so he stitched the five bodies together to make one and buried the child.
That night there was a knock at the door.#br
Now I will tell you a story about a young woman who was sealed in a small room.
In the room was a furnace and five keys.
She was told that each of the five keys would unlock one of the five doors outside her room.
Inside each room was a child that she could take with her as she fled the building,
but she was only allowed to leave her own room with one key, not all five.
Desperate to find a way to save all five children,
the woman melted the five keys together in furnace to create a single key,
hoping it would unlock all five doors.
Of course it did not work that way.
Now her key opened none of the doors.
Rather than leaving her room with a key to one life she had taken with her the key to five deaths.
Now I will tell you a story about a little boy.
He had a red snake that he kept in a metal cage, whose hunger could not be satisfied.
One day the boy found five baby kittens outside his house.
He brought them inside and kept them in a shoe box.
He knew that the snake might kill them but could not bring himself to get rid of the snake.
He knew if he chose one kitten to feed to the snake it might be satisfied, but he could not chose.
So, he went to bed leaving the cage open.
The snake went to the shoebox, chose a kitten at random and ate it
After five nights had gone by, the boy was full of regrets and cut snake open.
He pieced the remains together and put the kitten back into the shoe box.
