David heard the same story when he was growing up. It was the story of a lost land and an empty destiny. Before David was born, his family had tended the same large piece of land for decades. But that all changed when one of the family members acquired eighty districts. The land was divided.
David had heard stories of what he had lost to his now estranged relative as he grew older. He wanted the family farm to be complete, so when the opportunity presented itself, he knew he had to seize the opportunity. He wasn’t sure exactly how he would go about it, but he knew it was up to him at least to try.
David came to the auction that day with enough money to bid. However, he wasn’t sure he could compete with the bigger cultivator he was facing.
David and his dad were just hoping for the best
The auctioneer started the auction with a bid. But you won’t believe what happened next – when he called for a second show, the room fell silent. No sound came out among the other 200 farmers.
This reaction was totally unexpected, to the point that the auctioneer asked for a break. However, no one bid on the farm when they resumed work. David and the rest of the family were amazed. They recovered their farm easily! But why and how was it so easy?
The farming community in Nebraska knew the story and wanted David and his family to reclaim the land. The protesters deliberately remained silent when the second bid was presented to allow them to win the auction. This incredible story left David and his family filled with gratitude and amazement. Human kindness can go a long way, as we can see through this story.
