The Purest Of Heart

This is genuinely based on true story (but this is my version of the story)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

A son walked slowly to where his father was resting peacefully. "Dad" he called his dad to checked whether his old man was sleeping or wide awake. "Yes son, anything?" his father replied hoarsely. "Would you willingly run a marathon with me?" he asked his dad politely. "Of course son, anything for u" the father despite his age and almost-fatal heart condition responded with a broad smile spread on his wrinkly face.


And they ran a marathon together. Oh how the son appreciated every single step that they took together on the marathon track.

Weeks later, the son asked his father again "Dad, can u run another marathon with me?". Again,without any hesitation his father replied "Why of course my son, i'd do anything for u"

And once again , they run the marathon together.

One fine day , after came back from his daily working out routine from the community park near his house, the son asked his father again "Dad , would u consider participating in the Iron Man with me?"

Now for those who didnt know, "The Iron Man" is the toughest triathlon in the existence of mankind which require the participant to do a 4km swimming, then 180 km by bike, and finally another 42 km running, in one stroke.

Again , the father without any pause in his verbal tone said "Yes son , it'd be an honor to do that with you"

Maybe this doesnt touch your heart yet , or maybe this story is just a mere text , until u watch this clip .



p/s : i cried the very first time i saw this clip. and weep the second and the third time. So u must have an ancient heart to not feel the adversity of this incredible significant pair of father and son. That is one love that can conquer the world. period.
