The Wave

One day a little wave was bobbing along on the surface of the ocean.
For days it went about swaying gently to and fro.
One day off in the distance it saw the shore.
Suddenly it realized that it would soon hit the shore.
This frightened the little wave and in a panic turned to another wave and said.
“Look! We will hit the shore soon. What should we do?”
“Nothing.” responded the second wave.
“But you don’t understand. Once we hit the shore I’ll break apart.” said the little wave.
The bigger wave turned again to the smaller one and said “No you don’t understand. You are part of the ocean.”
