> people who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking & the boy
> was riding.
> The man & boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed
> Later, they passed some people that remarked, "What a shame, he
> makes that little boy walk." They then decided they both would walk!
> Soon they passed some more people who thought they were stupid to walk
> when they had a decent donkey to ride. So, they both rode the donkey.
> Next they passed some people that shamed them by saying how cruel they
> were to put such a load on a poor donkey. The boy & man agreed they
> were probably right, so they decide to carry the donkey.
> As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal and he
> fell into the river and drowned.
> The moral of the story?
