Two good friends, Sam and Jason, met with a caraccident on their way home one snowy night. The next morning, Sam woke upblind. His legs were broken. The doctor, Mr Lee, was standing by his bed,looking at him worriedly. When he saw Sam awake, he asked, “How are youfeeling, Sam?” Sam smiled and said, “Not bad, Doctor. Thank you very much fordoing the special operation(手术).” Mr Lee was moved bySam. When he was leaving, Sam said, “Please don’t tell Jason about it.”“Well…Well…OK,” Mr Lee replied.
Months later when Jason’s wounds healed(愈合), Sam was still very sick. He couldn’t see or walk.He could do nothing but stay in his wheelchair all day long. At first, Jasonstayed with him for a few days. But days later, Jason thought it boring tospend time with a disabled man like Sam. So he went to see Sam less and less.He made new friends. From then on, he didn’t go to visit Sam any more. Samdidn’t have any family or friends except Jason. He felt very sad.
Things went from bad to worse. Sam died a year later.When Jason came, Mr Lee gave him a letter from Sam. In the letter Sam said,“Dear Jason, I am disabled. But I want you to be a healthy man.
