Somewhere in Northern China, there’s a town called Shochet, a hopeless place for birds. Once there was a cockerel named Gallus who wanted to be like his dad who was a famous cock fighter. After the death of his dad in the cockpit, all the cockerels were frightened and discouraged to join the Hotspur (a club for cock fighters), except for Gallus, who was brave enough to persistently practice and prepare himself to join the club.  For him, he preferred to die as a cock fighter than be placed in a cage for poultry.

Gallus tried to convince his fellow cockerels to join the Hotspur Club because it is the only way to free themselves. But all of them were weak, hopeless, lazy and have prepared themselves for poultry.  Gallus did not get discouraged, but instead, he persevered to join the club.

After days of hard work, practice, discipline, determination and patience, his skills were noticed and was invited to join the Hotspur Club. He couldn’t believe he had made it. His family and friends were still pessimist and told him that: whether we like it or not, we’ll all die. Gallus made them realize that there’s still hope in the town of Shochet. That, yes we’ll all die, but we have the choice to live longer, stronger and meaningful. “It’s not how you die, but it’s how you live.”

MORAL LESSONS: Have faith in yourself and be optimistic. Determination, patience and hard work are needed to attain your goals and objectives successfully. Life is too short to worry on death/problems, so live life to the fullest.
