Learning to Trust

Leo Buscaglia tells the story of a man driving up a mountain road. The road narrows and the driver approaches a place where there is a precarious curve in the road.

Just as he is about to turn, a woman comes hurtling around in her car. When she sees him, she sticks her head out the window and yells out, “Pig!”

He thinks, “Why…. you road hog!” And he screams back at her, “Sow, sow!”

Then he turns the corner and hits a pig!

Often we don’t believe people want to do us good any more.
