Looking again at lies

InterestEng. illustration


     After one of our students read the old tale, “How the Sahara came to be” and then played the “adventure game” she wrote the following: 

I READ both stories and realized that there is no such thing as a small lie or a good lie. I just now understood this story. [She read it a second time.] It all started with a small lie and then became so great that even a small grain of sand could turn everywhere into a desert.
     Lying is a bad thing. It does not matter if it is small or big, we should avoid lying for our own happiness. We should talk about a problem with the other side and solve the problem. If the other side gets angry with us, we still should not lie. And, finally, thanks for these beautiful stories.  — S. F.
