Sam had always wished that he could fly like a bird. He did not understand why he could not fly. There were birds at the zoo that were much bigger than he, and they could fly.
One day in the park, Sam met another little boy who was crippled. He saw the little boy who could not walk or run playing in the sandbox. He ran over to the little boy and asked him if he had ever wanted to fly like a bird.
“No,” said the little boy. “But I have wondered what it would be like to walk and run like other children.”
“That is very sad”, Sam said. “Do you think we can be friends?”
“Sure,” said the little boy.
They played for hours till evening. At the end, Sam said to his new friend, “Although I can’t fly like a bird, but you can.”
Sam then turned around and told the little boy to slide up onto his back. He then began to run across the grass. Faster and faster he ran, carrying the little crippled boy on his back. Harder and harder he ran across the park. Soon the wind just whistled across the two little boys’ faces.
At this time, the little boy’s father came with a wheelchair to pick up his son. He began to cry as he watched his beautiful little son flapping his arms up and down in the wind, all the while yelling at the top of his voice, “I’m flying! Dad, I’m flying!”
