Bounce.

Excerpt from The Bounce Back Book.

Time not only heals, time reveals. A Buddhist tale.

There was once a family who lived in The Village of You Never Know.

One day, The Only Son slipped on and orange while tilling soil – and broke his arm. His Mother and Father were distraught. How could this happen? How unlucky!

The next day…The Father slipped on an orange – and broke both legs. Geez, this Fam

ily felt hexed! They wondered: why all this punishment?

Then within the week…A Big Bad War broke out in The Village of You Never Know, and all the able bodied men were called to fight.

The Only Son and Father were deemed unsuitable soldiers due to their injuries and were left back home. Nobody came home. Not a soldier.

Suddenly A Family didn’t feel so put upon.
