Is it worth it?
(第1期)
 
 

  They were good friends since childhood and at the same time joined the army during World War I.
Horror gripped the heart of the World War I soldier as he saw his lifelong friend fall in battle. Caught in a trench with continuous gunfire whizzing over his head, the soldier asked his lieutenant if he might go out into the“No Man’s Land” between the trenches to bring his fallen comrade back.
“You can go,” said the lieutenant, “but I don’t think it will be worth it. Your friend is probably dead and you may throw your own life away.” The lieutenant’s words didn’t matter, and the soldier went anyway.
Miraculously he managed to reach his friend, lifted him onto his shoulder, and brought him back to their trench. As the two of them fell down to the bottom of the trench, the lieutenant checked the wounded soldier, and then looked kindly at his friend. “I told you it wouldn’t be worth it,” he said. “Your friend is dead, and you are deadly wounded.”
“It was worth it, though, sir,” the soldier said.
“How do you mean ‘worth it’?” responded the lieutenant. “Your friend is dead!”
“Yes, sir,”the soldier answered.“But it was worth it because when I got to him, he was still alive, and I had the satisfaction of hearing him say:‘Jim, I knew you’d come.’”
Many a time in life, whether a thing is worth doing or not really depends on how you look at it. Take up all your courage and do something your heart tells you to do, so that you may not regret not doing it later in life.
