The Boys and the Frogs
an Aesop Fable
Some boys were playing around a pond when they spotted a
group of frogs hopping and swimming about in the water. The boys began
to throw rocks at the frogs and even competed against each other as
to who could hit the most frogs. Sometimes the rocks hit the frogs so
hard that they died.
one frog hopped upon a lily pad.
"Please stop," he pleaded, "What
may seem just fun to you is death to us."
We should not have our pleasures at the expense of others.
