The Balloon Salesman
"Several years ago, a balloon salesman was selling balloons on the streets of New York City. When business got a little slow, he would release a balloon . As it floated into the air, a fresh crowd of buyers would gather and his business would pick up for a few minutes. He alternated the colors, first releasing a white one , then a red one , and later a yellow one. After a time, a little African American boy tugged on his coat sleeve, looked the balloon salesman in the eye, and asked a penetrating question. "Mister, if you released a black balloon, would it go up?" The balloon salesman looked at the little boy and with compassion, wisdom and understanding said, "Son, it's what's inside those balloons that makes them go up."
My mood: a bit bummed
