Secret smile

I write this from my own experience. One day, tired after a day of work, I walked from work with a heavy face. Then a person not know what the electric car and smiled as I reflected, I answered. Suddenly, all my tiredness seemed to disappear.

There is a story of Saint Exupéry, but I accidentally read. Literary enthusiasts no stranger to the author of Little Prince. He served as pilot participants against Nazism in World War II. From these years, he wrote a smile. I do not know if this is an autobiography or a fiction, but I believe it is real. In the story, Saint Exupéry was a prisoner being brutalized and he thinks that soon he would be shot like the others. He writes:

I became distraught. Twitching my hands and draw out a cigarette from the pocket. But I do not have matches. Through the bars, I saw the guards. He did not see me, so I call:

- Sorry, I have no fire?

He shrugged his shoulders and then approached. When the match is drawn, by chance he looked into my eyes. Immediately, I smile. I do not understand why I do it. Maybe because you want to make friends with someone, it's easy to smile.

At this time, seems to have a flame burning across the gap between our two hearts, between Two human heart. I know he does not want to, but because I have to laugh so he smiled back. He turned matches, came to me over, looked straight into my eyes and mouth still smiling. Now, before I'm not a Nazi prison staff but also a human being.

- I have children? - He asked me.

- There - I said and pulled out a wallet from the pocket of his family there. Clips from the bag he also pulled out a picture of the child and began to tell of his hopes for them.

My eyes glaze rate. I know that I was going to die and never see their loved ones. He cried.

Suddenly, without another word, he unlocked the chamber and pulled me out of jail. He quietly took me out of town, let me back then.

So then, my life was saved by a smile. Since reading this story, I learned a lot. I know that underneath every shell we create to protect themselves, and protect the dignity of his position, beneath which there is precious one I call the soul. I believe that if your spirit and soul together I realize we have nothing to fear or hate each other. If you ever have moments stick with others through the power of smiles, then I believe you will agree with me that's a minor miracle, a wonderful gift that we can for each other. Mother Theresa felt this in her life and give a sincere advice:

"Keep smiling to each other, smiling with your wife, your husband, your child and with everyone - whether it be one, because this will help you grow in love together. "
