|Good Deeds - What Goes Around
His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish
farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard
a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to
There, mired to his waist in black muck, was
a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming
saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.
The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the
Scotsman's sparse surroundings An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out
and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.
"I want to repay you," said the nobleman.
"You saved my son's life."
"No, I can't accept payment for what I did,"
the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer's
own son came to the door of the family hovel.
"Is that your son?" the nobleman asked.
"Yes," the farmer replied proudly.
"I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him
with the level of education my own son will enjoy. If the lad is anything
like his father, he'll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud
of." And that he did.
Farmer Fleming's son attended the very best schools
and in time, graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London,
and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander
Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.
Years afterward, the same nobleman's son who
was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia.
What saved his life this time? Penicillin.
The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill.
His son's name?
Sir Winston Churchill.
