Dannie Donkey In The Den（深井裡的驢子）
Dannie was a sweet, gentle two-year-old donkey.
He always followed his master to the market to help him carry goods.
One day, on the way back from the market, he fell into a dried well.
The well was deep and dark. Dannie Donkey was very scared.
His master tried all kinds of ways trying to save him out of the well.
He tried and tried but nothing seemed work.
He finally decided to give up.
He thought to himself” I’d better cover this dried well, so no one else would fall into the well again.
He called some friends and got some dirt and started to cover the well with dirt.
“What in the world is that” said Dannie.
“ Are they going to cover me with dirt?”
“ Am I going to be buried in the dirt and die?”
“Why there’s no one having mercy on me?”
“ No, I don’t want to die. What should I do?”
Dannie was crying as hard as he could.
But it didn’t take long that he changed his thought.
Actually, he had not much time to think about it.
He just started to shake off the dirt on his back.
Little by little, but surely, he came higher and higher every time people put dirt into the well.
“Here I am!”
With a big smile on his face, he triumphantly walked out of the well.
Every body was surprised but surely happy to see him.
Just shook off the dirt on his back and not felt sorry for himself.
Dannie not only save his life but also gave everyone a good lesson—
Shake off whatever looks bad on you and let it be a foot stool instead a foot stone for you.
