A teacher bought a lot of balloons. She had the students inflate them and asked each child to write their name on a balloon. When they were ready, the children released all the balloons into the classroom. The teacher stirred them all over the room and gave them 5 minutes to find the balloon with their name on it.
Excited, the children quickly began to dig through the balloons, running from one end to the other. They searched and searched, but time passed and no one was able to find their balloon.
Then the teacher then changed the condition of their task: "Now take the nearest balloon and give it to a child whose name is on it."
In two minutes, all the children received the balloon with their name on it.
The teacher summarised the lesson:
"Balloons are like Happiness. No one can find only their own. When we show concern and support to each other, everyone will find their happiness in the fastest way possible."
