谁富?谁穷?Who Is Rich & Who Is Poor?

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.

They spent a couple of days and night on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father ask his son: "How was the trip?"

"It was great, Dad!"

"Did you see how poor people live?" the father ask.

"Oh yeah!" said the son.

"So, tell me, what you learn from the trip?" ask the father.

The son answer, "I saw that we have one dog, and they have four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end..."

"....We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond....."

"....We have servants who serve us but they serve other. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added: " Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are."

有一天,一个来自非常富裕家庭的父亲,他儿子到一个贫穷国度旅行,藉此让儿子了解穷人的生活。

他们在一个被视为非常穷困的农户家中住了数天数夜,回程时父亲儿子:行如何

这太棒了,爸爸

“你看到穷人是如何生活了吗父亲

“噢我看到了!”儿子

那麽告诉我,你这次的行程学习到甚麽父亲问

儿子回答说:“发觉,我们一条狗他们有四条;我们拥有一个直达花园正中的游泳池他们却拥有一条没有尽头的小溪... ...
 

“....我们的花园,夜晚靠入灯笼照明他们的夜晚却有星星相衬我们的天井庭院直前院,他们却享有整个地平线我们拥有一小片土地以过活,他们却享有一望无际的天际....."
 

“....我们拥有仆人侍奉他们却能侍奉他人我们购买食物维生他们靠双手种植培养食物维生;我们筑起高墙自我保护他们却与朋友互相扶持倚靠

男孩的父亲哑口无言。

然后儿子又说:“感谢你爸爸我这才发现,原来我们是何其穷困
