CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A doctor, lawyer, priest and a little boy were on a small plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down.
The pilot grabbed a parachute and yelled to the passengers that they better jump, and he himself bailed out.
Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes left. The doctor grabbed one and said, “I’m a doctor, I save lives, so I must live."
The lawyer said, “I’m a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world I deserve to live”, grabbing a parachute and proceeding to jump.
The priest looked at the little boy and said, “My son, I’ve lived a long and full life...Take the last parachute and live."
The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, “Not to worry Father---The smartest man in the world just took off with my backpack.”
Moral of the story: Today think of others before thinking of self.
