At the beginning of the 20th century, a Scottish farmer passed by a bog on his way home. Suddenly he heard a cry for help. When the farmer ran to the direction of the sound, a boy was stuck in the swamp.
As the boy struggled to get out of the swamp, the swamp sucked him in, and the boy screamed loudly in fear. The farmer immediately sawed off a thick branch and carefully approached the drowning boy. So the boy was saved!
She was still trembling with fear and the tears were still flowing. Let’s go to our place, dry your clothes and relax, the farmer said, No, no. The boy refused and shook his head, thinking that my father is waiting for me and must be in a lot of pain.
So the boy looked at his savior with a grateful look and ran away… The next morning, the farmer saw a rich cart coming to his house. A rich gentleman came down from the carriage: Are you the one who saved my son’s life yesterday? asked.
“Yes, I am,” answered the farmer. How much can I give you? Don’t hurt me, sir. You don’t have to pay me anything. I did what a normal person should do. No, my son is so precious to me that I cannot leave him alone.
Tell me the number you want, asked the rich man. I don’t want to talk to you about this topic again. The farmer said goodbye and turned to go home when his son jumped out of the house. Is this your son? asked the rich man.
“Yes,” replied the farmer admiringly, stroking his son’s head. So here it is. I will take your son to London and pay for him to get a good education. If your son is as kind as his father, I am sure that neither you nor I will regret this decision later.
Several years have passed since then. The farmer’s son graduated from secondary school and then from the Medical University. Soon, the well-known penicillin vaccine was discovered and its name became famous all over the world.
His name was Alexander Flemming. Just before the war, the rich gentleman’s son was taken to a posh London hospital with severe pneumonia. What do you think saved his life this time?
It’s penicillin discovered by Alexander Fleming. The wealthy gentleman who helped educate Flemming was Randolph Churchill, and his son, who was rescued from the swamp, was Winston Churchill.
Later, after becoming the prime minister of England, Winston Churchill said, “The good you do will come back to you one day.”
