What goes around comes around From Karadala

March 30, 2014
May be an old one, but worth reading again.
 
There was poor Scottish farmer named Fleming,
Once while he was at work, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog.
 
Mired to his waist in black muck, there was a terrified boy, screaming and
 
struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have
 
been a slow and terrifying death.

 

The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman’s sparse surroundings.
 
An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father
 
of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.

 

‘I wanna repay to you,’ said the nobleman. ‘You saved my son’s life.’

 

‘Nay, I can’t accept payment for what I did, the Scottish farmer replied. 
 
At that moment, the farmer’s own son came to the door of the family hovel.

 

‘Is that your son?’ the nobleman asked.

 

‘Yep,’ said the farmer proudly.

 

‘I’ll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own
 
son will enjoy If the lad is anything like his father, he’ll no doubt grow to be
 
a man, we both will be proud of.
 
And that he did.

 

Farmer Fleming’s son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated
 
from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become
 
known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.

 

Years  afterward, the same nobleman’s son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia.

 

What  saved  his life this  time?  Penicillin.

 

The name of the nobleman?  Lord Randolph Churchill.

 

His son’s name? Sir Winston Churchill. 

 

Someone once said: What goes around comes around”.
