HOW TO BE A REAL FRIEND SĂ FII UN PRIETEN ADEVĂRAT

NOVEMBER 2013


A ll old man’s daughter‘s friends were very excited on Wednesday morning. They were traveling across town to another kindergarten to take part in an international quiz contest where the winning class would receive a costume party at Blue Flower Kindergarten the next day. Once they got there they met with their friends: Matolek, Zaltka Goldie, Ivan, Egle, Kalev’s son, Findus and Frog King.

W hen the bus dropped them off, the kids were surprised to see a boy from another kindergarten being helped off a bus with a ramp. This boy was in a wheelchair and could not walk on his own.


I nside the quiz room, the children were very nervous. They did not know how the boy in the wheelchair would get up to the microphone to answer the questions, and they also did not know what to say to a boy who could not do things they could do, like playing football. How can you be friends with someone who cannot walk, play, or even go down stairs?


T he quiz contest started and soon the boy in the wheelchair had his turn. The kids were surprised as he quickly wheeled himself up to the stage and zoomed up the ramp that allowed him to get to the microphone. The room was silent as the boy was told to answer the question “what friendship means� in front of the room. With a confident voice, the boy smiled at the room and answered perfectly.

A fter he was awarded a point for his team, he went back to his spot and everyone realized that everyone has talents and limits, and that a disability does not mean a child cannot still find success and happiness.
