When You Feel the World is Against You

by johnchang

A farmer found a herd of wild horses..

"What good fortune!" his neighbors said.

"Sometimes what seems like a blessing is a curse.."

replied the farmer.

The next day his son tried to tame a horse..

..but fell and broke his leg.

"What bad luck!" lamented the farmer's wife.

"Sometimes what seems like a curse is really a blessing.."

said the farmer.

Not long afterwards, war broke out..

..and all able-bodied men were drafted..

But the son was passed over..

"Some of God's greatest gifts.. are unanswered prayers"

Garth Brooks

Pretty cute! I like the method you used to strike down the old shibboleth, luck. This was well thought out and a great allegory for life.
