There once was a king captured by the Roman army. They took the king with his family to stand before the Roman general to receive the sentence of death. The king fell on his face before the general and said, âYou may do with me what you will, but spare my wife and children!â The Roman general was so moved by the plea that he released them all.Â
Later, the king asked his wife about some of the things they had seen while in the Roman generalâs chamber. She said, âI didn't see anything.Â My eyes were only on the man who was willing to die for me.âÂ
