Once there was a race for handicapped children, with one gold medal to be won. The race started, and was only 100 meters. There were seven children competing for that one gold medal. Soon after the race began, the last place runner fell down. Without hesitation, the sixth child stopped to pick up the seventh. Seeing the sixth had stopped, the fifth also stopped. And so did the fourth...They all forgot that the race was for one gold medal. Instead, they all teamed together, and ran through the finish line hand-in-hand. The race organisers decided, then and there, to give them seven gold medals. They had never before seen such teamwork and the stands full of spectators agreed; The admirable handicapped children got a well-deserved standing ovation.
