The story is very beautiful, and the subtle metaphor of the 'blind man who could see', as in, the people, no matter how limited their own lives, who know the truth of how important it is to help the suffering, is very well-done. The writing style is a little blunt at some points, not very flowery or anything, but I think that's a good thing because the message is more important than descriptions or fancy adjectives. It was a very good story and I would recommend it to anyone, especially to consider the message.
