Kindness


I'd like to share with you an extraordinarily remarkable true story.
It is regarding a poor Scottish farmer with the surname of Fleming.
One day, whilst he was working – he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog.
He stopped what he was doing, dropped his tools and ran to the bog.
There, he saw – buried to his waist in black muck – a terrified young boy – screaming whilst struggling to free himself.
Farmer Fleming jumped in the bog and saved the boy from what would otherwise have been a slow and terrifying death.
The next day – a fancy carriage pulled up to his sparse surroundings.
An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy whom Farmer Fleming had saved the previous day.
"You saved my son's life," said the nobleman. "I would like to repay you".

The farmer waved off the offer , replying,
"No, I can't accept payment for what I did,"

Just then – the farmer's own son came to the door of the humble family home.

"Is that your son?" enquired the nobleman.

"Yes," the farmer replied proudly.
The nobleman paused and then said,
"I'll offer you a deal instead. Let me take your son and provide him with a good education. If the boy is anything like his father – he will grow up to be a man you can be proud of."

Farmer Fleming accepted.
In time – Farmer Fleming's son graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London – and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming – the discoverer of Penicillin.
Many years later – the nobleman's son was stricken with pneumonia.
What was it that saved the nobleman's son's life? Penicillin.
And what was the name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill.
And his son's name? Sir Winston Churchill.
