The Hare and the Tortoise:

A Modern Tale of Resilience In a bustling city, amidst the clamor of cars and the rush of people,
there lived a young hare named Harper. Harper was known for his speed
and agility, but he lacked patience. He ofen boasted about his swift abilities,
much to the amusement of his friends. One day, the mayor of the city announced a grand race through the winding streets
and towering skyscrapers. Excited by the prospect of glory, Harper eagerly signed up,
confident in his ability to outpace everyone.

On the day of the race, Harper dashed ahead from the starting line, leaving a trail of dust behind him. But as he sprinted through the streets, he soon found himself lost in the maze of alleys and roads. Despite his speed, he couldn't find his way back to the race course. Meanwhile, a tortoise named Theo, plodded along steadily, taking each turn with careful consideration. While he moved slower than Harper, he never lost sight of the route, inching closer to the finish line with each deliberate step. As the sun began to set, Harper stumbled upon Theo, who was nearing the end of the race. Exhausted and disheartened, Harper realized his mistake. With a newfound respect for patience and perseverance, he followed Theo to the finish line. In the end, it was Theo who crossed the finish line first, proving that slow and steady indeed, wins the race. And as Harper learned, rushing into things without preparation often leads to unnecessary detours and missed opportunities. © Concetta Pipia US
