American Red, White & Blue
upon a time, a king had a great highway built for the people
who lived in his kingdom. After it was completed, but before
it was opened to the public, the king decided to have a
contest. He invited as many of his subjects as desired to
participate. The challenge was to see who could travel the
highway the best, and the winner was to receive a box of
the day of the contest, all the people came. Some of them had
fine chariots, some had fine clothing and fancy food to make
the trip a luxurious journey. Some wore their sturdiest shoes
and ran along the highway on their feet to show their skill.
All day they traveled the highway, and each one, when he
arrived at the end, complained to the king about a large pile
of rocks and debris that had been left almost blocking the
road at one point, and that got in their way and hindered
the end of the day, a lone traveler crossed the finish line
warily and walked over to the king. He was tired and dirty,
but he addressed the king with great respect and handed him a
small chest of gold. He said, "I stopped along the way
to clear a pile of rocks and debris that was blocking the
road. This chest of gold was under it all. Please have it
returned to its rightful owner."
king replied, "You are the rightful owner." "Oh
no," said the traveler, "This is not mine. I've
never known such money."
yes," said the king, "you've earned this gold, for
you won my contest. He who travels the road best is he who
makes the road better for those who will follow."
