been weak since birth. As he grew older,the only thing he was able to do
and was very good at,was playing the flute.
Mogo was ashamed that he was not strong enough to do "man's work" so,
he went to see a local wise man. The wise man told Mogo to learn to do
other things besides playing the flute which, Mogo did, but one day Mogo
and some other boys were out herding goats,a storm came upon them
suddenly and all the goats ran away! Oh no,what will happen when the boys return
to the village without the goats?!?!?
Mogo's story reminds me of one of Aesop's fables. It is the story of a boy that no
one expects much from (not even Mogo himself) but,in the end,his "gift" of the
flute playing pulls him through. A nice story,different.
