Enduring Suffering

There was a certain town called Gee, surrounded by other smaller towns such as the Tee Town, Dweh Town and others. Tee Town and the other towns were smaller towns and Gee Town was a very big town.

Citizens of Tee Town and the other towns lived happily, until Gee Town learned that Tee and Dweh Towns were rich in cash crops, such as rubber, palm trees, coconuts, among others.

Citizens of Gee Town began to act wicked to the people of Tee Town, Dweh Town and other smaller towns. Whenever Tee Town and Dweh Town citizens were harvesting their crops, Gee Town people would forcibly go and take whatever they wanted. This was Gee Town people’s usual habit.  

One day, Swen, a boy of 15 years and from Dweh Town got tired with the way Gee Town people were treating his people, so he decided to express his feelings to King Nyan of Gee Town.

At a meeting the boy told bravely him, “Oh king, you have treated my people so bad that we don’t have our freedoms anymore but you must know that as a king, other people in this region have the right to live like everyone else.

“You should not think that Oh King, only your people should have peace and prosperity and we ask for better treatment as human beings.”

Thereafter, the unhappy king ordered and his men killed the poor boy. The boy’s death was felt by all the people who knew how brave he was to confront the wicked king of Gee. The Gee people continued their wickedness and tormented their neighbors.

Though the people of the other towns cried out for deliverance from the burden that the people of Gee had imposed on them, deliverance did not come, many of the suffering believed that in due time, God, the maker of all things would set things right and therefore they endured their suffering under the wicked king of Gee.
