Story No 1
Sam and Jason were inseparable best friends. They met when Jason was injured while on their way to Boston City. Jason woke up the next morning blind, while Sam was still unconscious. With a thoughtful expression, Dr. Berkeley stood at Sam’s bedside and inspected his medications and health chart. He smiled at Sam and asked him “How are you feeling today Sam?” Sam, how are you feeling today?” Sam tried to be brave and smiled back, saying “absolutely fantastic Doctor.” Thank you so much for everything that you did for me. Sam’s act moved Dr Berkeley. He could only say, “You are a very courageous man Sam, and God will make up for you in some way or the other.” Sam called back to him almost imploringly, “Promise me that you won’t tell Jason any of this.”
“You know that I won’t do it. Trust me.” And he walked away.
Sam said, “Thanks,” Sam smiled and prayed, “I hope I live up to your ideas…please grant me the strength to get through this.
After Jason had made significant progress in his recovery, Jason decided to stop hanging out with Sam. Sam was disabled and he felt embarrassed about spending time with him.
Sam felt lonely and demoralized because he didn’t have Jason to lean on. Things got worse. Sam finally died from despair. Jason found a letter in his mailbox when he called for his burial. With a blank expression, Dr. Berkeley handed it to Jason and said “This is for Jason.” Sam had asked me for it and I gave it to him when he was gone.”
He had written to Jason saying: “Dear Jason, I have kept my promise at the end to lend my eyes to you if anything had occurred to them.” There is nothing I can ask God more than the fact that you will see the entire world through my eyes. You will always be my friend ……..Sam.”
After he finished reading, Dr. Berkeley stated that he had promised Sam to keep his sins secret. Now I regret that I didn’t keep it. I don’t believe it was worth it.
Jason has left with only tears of sorrow and the memories of Sam for the rest his life.

Story No 2
Socrates, an ancient Greek philosopher, was believed to have held knowledge in high regard. One day, a fellow said to Socrates, “Does this tell you anything about my friend?” “Hold on, Socrates,” he replied. “Before you tell me anything, I would like you to take a test. This is called the Triple Filter Test. “Triple filter?” Socrates said, “That’s right.” It might be a good idea for you to filter your words before you speak to me about my friend. It’s the third filter, which I call the Triple Filter Test. Truth is the first filter. Are you absolutely certain that the information you’re about to give me is truthful? The man replied, “No, actually I just heard about it and …”..” Socrates replied, “All right.” “So, you don’t know whether it’s true. Let’s now try the second filter, The filter of Goodness. Are you going to tell me something positive about my friend? “No, on the contrary…” “No, …”. Socrates said, “So, you want to tell him something negative about him, but it’s not certain that it’s true.” The test may pass, but you might still be successful because there is one more filter: the filter for Usefulness. What is your friend’s story going to be of use to you? “No, not really.” Socrates concluded, “Well, if what you want me to say is not true, good, or even useful, then why to tell me?”
Lesson or Moral of Story:
To relieve boredom, we can always engage in loose discussions. It’s not worth it when it comes to your friends. Avoid talking behind your back about close friends.
