Παρακολούθησες ποτέ παιδιά στο λούνα παρκ?
ή άκουσες την βροχή να πέφτει στο χώμα?
Παρακολούθησες το τρελό πέταγμα μιας πεταλούδας?
Χάζεψες τον ήλιο καθώς ξεθωριάζει η νύχτα?
Καλύτερα να χαλαρώσεις.
Μην χορεύεις τόσο γρήγορα.
Η ζωή είναι μικρή.
Η μουσική δεν κρατάει για πάντα.
Τρέχεις αλαφιασμένος κάθε μέρα?
Όταν ρωτάς κάποιον \'\'πως είσαι;\"
Ακούς την απάντηση?
Όταν τελειώνει η μέρα πέφτεις στο κρεβάτι
αγκαλιά με σκέψεις για εκατοντάδες δουλειές
που στριφογυρίζουν στο κεφάλι σου?
Καλύτερα χαλάρωσε.
Μην χορεύεις τ΄σο γρήγορα.
Η ζωή είναι μικρή.
Είπες ποτέ στο παιδί σου \'\'θα το κάνουμε αυτό αύριο\'\'
και μέσα στην βιασύνη σου δεν είδες την λύπη του?
Έχασες επαφή Άφησες μια καλή φιλία να πεθάνει
επειδή ποτέ δεν είχες τον χρόνο να πάρεις ένα τηλέφωνο
και να πεις \'\'γεια!\'\' Καλύτερα χαλάρωσε.
Μην χορεύεις τόσο γρήγορα.
Η ζωή είναι.
Η μουσική δεν κρατάει για πάντα.
Όταν τρέχεις παλαβωμένα για να πας κάπου
χάνεις τη μισή χαρά της διαδρομής.
Όταν όλο ανησυχείς και βιάζεσαι,
είναι σα να πετάς ένα δώρο που δεν άνοιξες.....
Η ζωή δεν είναι αγώνας ταχύτητας.
Γι΄αυτό χαλάρωσε. Άκου την μουσική
Πριν τελειώσει το τραγούδι.

Ευχαριστούμε, Adriana. Παρόλο που μου φαίνεται μας είχες ξεχάσει για πολύ καιρό.

Έψαξα λιγάκι και είδα ότι το ωραίο αυτό ποίημα έχει μια παράξενη ιστορία. Στην αρχή φαίνεται συγκινητική, στην πραγματικότητα όμως αποδείχτηκε απάτη. Διαβάστε την εδώ:

This is not a joke or chain letter as such but a beautiful poem, and a lesson for us to consider.

This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital. It was sent by a medical doctor - Dr. Yeou Cheng Ma. Please do what you can to help fulfill this young girl\'s dream by also reading what is in the closing statement AFTER THE POEM.

SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly\'s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You\'d better slow down.
Don\'t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won\'t last.

Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask \"How are you?\"
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?
You\'d better slow down
Don\'t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won\'t last.

Ever told your child,
We\'ll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say \"Hi\"?
You\'d better slow down.
Don\'t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won\'t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift....
Thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO HELP THIS LITTLE GIRL. ALL FORWARDED E-MAILS ARE TRACKED TO OBTAIN THE TOTAL COUNT.

Dear All:

PLEASE pass this mail on to everybody you know. It is the request of a special little girl who will soon leave this world as she has cancer.

Thank you for your effort, this isn\'t a chain letter, but a choice for all of us to save a little girl that\'s dying of a serious and fatal form of cancer.

Please send this to everyone you know... or don\'t know. This little girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will.

She\'ll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own. By you sending this to as many people as possible, you can give her and her family a little hope, because with every name that this is sent to, The American Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name to her treatment and recovery plan. One guy sent this to 500 people!!!!

So I know that we can send it to at least 5 or 6. Just think it could be you one day. It\'s not even your money, just your time!!! \"PLEASE PASS ON AS A LAST REQUEST\"

Dr. Dennis Shields, Professor
Department of Developmental and
Molecular Biology
Albert Einstein College of Medicine of

Rule of thumb: Any e-mail message that starts out by telling you that it isn\'t a chain letter most likely is! This one\'s been around in one form or another since 1997, creating an interesting snapshot of the life of a hoax. In its original form, it told the story of Jessica Mydeck, who supposedly had a terrible form of brain cancer. Since the letter claimed she only has 6 months to live, her name was probably removed from future texts to keep it from being identified as outdated (or as the hoax it is).

The poem was written by David L. Weatherford and published in 1991 by the Russ Berrie Company. It was added to the chain letter in early 2001. Weatherford is uncertain how the poem came to be associated with the dying child hoax and does not endorse its inclusion. Heart-warming and inspirational, it lowers our defenses and make us less skeptical of the rest of the message. Other versions of this \"dying kid\" chain letter feature an ASCII-Text \"Elmo\" or other feel-good messages instead of the poem.

Dr. Shields\' involvement with this letter is a case of False Attribution Syndrome. He has nothing to do with this hoax other than the fact that he forwarded the message and automatically attached his \"signature\" to it. In a 2001 statement on their web site, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine denied Dr. Shields\' involvement with the hoax and asked you to delete it and help stop its spread.

The message implies that the American Cancer Society is tracking forwards of the message, but the ACS denies any involvement with this or any other e-mail scheme to provide help to a needy child. Besides, E-mail tracking as it is described in the letter is technologically impossible.

Most of us would love to help the fight against cancer, especially if it were as easy of forwarding an e-mail message. Bottom line, the fight for cancer takes money. The American Cancer Society doesn\'t make donations, they collect them - your donations and mine. Hoaxes like this one hurt organizations like ACS because they force them to divert valuable time, personnel, and resources to respond to the lies. Break this Chain!
