Our world is a grand and amazing place, full of beauty and curiosities such as the stars, sky, creatures of the ocean, and lush forests. However, it is not perfect or always just. That is why we have amazing things in it like fables to teach people how to survive and cope with the hardship that they face in life.

Simply put, fables are short stories that convey a moral. Some of my favorite fables are Aesop’s fables which include stories such as the “The Tortoise and the Hare” (moral: never give up) and “The Lion and the Mouse” (moral: no act of kindness is ever wasted).

I am very grateful for the existence of fables. They can inspire people to think about life events and one another more deeply.
