Title: The Best I Could Do.

An old man lived alone in a village. He wanted to spade his potato field, but it was very hard work. His only son, who was a freedom fighter, would have helped him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his situation:

Dear Son,

I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plant my potato field this year. I hate to miss doing the field, because your mother always loved planting time. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a field plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot for me, if you weren't in prison.


Shortly, the old man received this telegram: 'For Heaven's sake, Dad, don't dig up the field!! That's where I buried the GUNS!!'

At 4 a.m. the next morning, a dozen British Solders and local police officers showed up and dug up the entire field without finding any guns.

Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what happened, and asked him what to do next.

His son's reply was: 'Go ahead and plant your potatoes,

Dad... It's the best I could do for you from here.'


No matter where you are in the World. If you have decided to do something deep from your heart you can do it.

It is the thought that matters... Not where you are or who you are....
