‘Todah rabah, Shimon’: Obama offers passionate farewell to Peres – Arutz Sheva

Paulo Cohelo shared a story he had heard from simon Peres at Davos Economic Forum at Davos,
the winner of the Nobel prize for peace,Simon Peres,told the following story.
A Rabbi gathered together his students and asked them:
“How do you know the exact moment when night ends and day begins?”
“When it’s light enough to tell a sheep from a dog,”
said one boy.
Another student saud:”No,when it’s light enough to tell an olive tree from a fig tree.”
“No,that’s not a good definition either.”
“Well,what’s the right answer?”asked the boys.
And the Rabbi said:
“When a stranger approaches,and we think he is our brother,and all conflicts disappear,that is the moment when night ends and day begins.”

Actually in my life i have had more moments when i thought a brother approaches and he turned out to have been a stranger but i do appreciate this story.

I wonder why i had happened to have found this particular story at this particular time.

I used to tell things like that to the skeptical mind of a scientist who used to discount it as pure coincidence but at this moment i do not believe there is such a thing as coincidence..
