The Power of Unity


Once upon a time, there lived a father and three sons. The sons would always fight and quarrel with each other. One day the father wanted to teach them a lesson. He wanted his sons to bring a bunch of sticks. The sons went out and returned with a bunch of wooden sticks. The father wanted his sons to take a stick from the bunch and break it.

They broke the sticks easily one by one. Then he wanted his sons to take three stick from the bunch and break them too. Then they tried to break the sticks, but they couldn’t. They tried harder, but they couldn’t break it. Then he told his sons, “No one can hurt you if you stick to each other like these sticks. But if you are divided like one stick, you can be broken easily.”

Moral: Unity creates power.
