    A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see
    the farmer and his wife open a package.

    “What food might this contain?” The mouse wondered –
    he was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap.

    Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the
    warning.

    “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a
    mousetrap in the house!”

    The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head
    and said, “Mr. Mouse, I can tell this is a grave
    concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I
    cannot be bothered by it.”

    The mouse turned to the pig and told him, “There is
    a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the
    house!”

    The pig sympathized, but said, “I am so very sorry,
    Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but
    pray. Be assured you are in my prayers.”

    The mouse turned to the cow and said “There is a
    mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the
    house!”

    The cow said, “Wow, Mr. Mouse. I’m sorry for you, but
    it’s no skin off my nose.”

    So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and
    dejected, to face the farmer’s mousetrap alone.

    That very night a sound was heard throughout the
    house — like the sound of a mousetrap catching its
    prey.

    The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In
    the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake
    whose tail the trap had caught.

    The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her
    to the hospital, and she returned home with a fever.

    Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken
    soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard
    for the soup’s main ingredient.

    But his wife’s sickness continued, so friends and
    neighbors came to sit with her around the clock.
    To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig.

    The farmer’s wife did not get well; she died. So many
    people came for her funeral, the farmer had the cow
    slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them.

    The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the
    wall with great sadness.

    So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem
    and think it doesn’t concern you…., remember
    — when one of us is threatened, we are all at risk.

    We are all involved in this journey called life. We
    must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra
    effort to encourage one another.
