Lion and Mouse

 In his last speech, president Abdul Fattah al-Sisi called on the Egyptian people to be as brave and powerful as lions and work hard each in his position. He added that this way Egypt would be so powerful as great lion that nobody can threaten.

I remembered this story that my mother used to tell me. The story says a great lion woke up to see a small mouse falling on his leg. The lion grew angry and decided to kill the mouse. Yet, the mouse said he didn’t mean to annoy the great lion, and asked him to leave him in peace and promised to do as much as he can to help the great lion.
The lion wondered how can such little mouse be helpful to him, but he let him go. Few days later, the lion was caught in trap and went roaring and asked for help. The mouse went to him and started chewing the net and made a big hole to let the lion escape and was saved thanks to the little mouse.
Now, the lion told the mouse: I realized that we can’t live without one another no matter how powerful and mighty we are.
