special story

I met this old timer, he asked me who's son I was , I said my first and sir name, he asked "who's son are you?"
so I said I am waleed son so and so, he asked for more so I said my name all the way up to my great grandfather,
he said "aaah yes I have not heard that name in a long while, I used to work on one of his boats, and I remember
his son (my grandfather) when he was a young boy" I was astonished to hear that, he told me how hard life was
back then and how things of the past where, I noticed his right foot was wrapped so I asked what happened and
he said that, "its of no use to me now" so I felt like serving a man who had served my great grandfather and I
massaged his leg for him. the man wept and wept and said" that life has justice and God never forgets what
good man did even in his early age" curiosity got the best of me and I was intrigued by the deeper meaning
of what he meant, but unfortunately he refused to say... I suppose some things of the past we will never know,
mysteries locked in old minds that fade in their graves
