A trader had borrowed five hundred pieces of silver from his neighbor, Gilmore. When the trader heard that the people who had witnessed this were dead, he refused to pay Gilmore, thinking that there was no way Gilmore could prove that he had lent him the money. Max, Gilmore's servant, took the trader to court and presented the facts to the judge but told the judge that there was one witness left: the stone on which the money was counted. Max told the judge that he hoped that it would provide evidence to the case. He also requested the judge to wait while the stone was brought to the court and the judge agreed. At the end of the day, the stone had not arrived. The trader said, "Your Highness, even if you wait until tomorrow, the stone will not arrive. It is more than ten kilometers away. You will need about twenty men to move it." Max then calmly explained to the judge that the stone had indeed given its testimony: the trader admitted that he knew which stone they were referring to and where the stone was. This upset the trader so much that he was forced to confess his crime.

Every morning my mother stands at the traffic light near the elementary school. As a crossing guard, she helps the children when they cross the street. One day Mother said, "Jane, everyday I use magic. I look at the red light like this. I don't touch it, and I say, 'One, two, three!' And then the light changes. I can change the light by magic." "No, you can't. The light will change if you wait," I said to her, but she smiled and said nothing.

Mother has many letters from the children. Yesterday she showed me a letter from a boy. It said, "Thank you, Ms. Witch. I did it! You used magic for me, and then I could swim." I asked Mother, "What did you do for him?" "I just said, 'One, two, three! You can swim,'" she replied. "That's not magic," I said. "You are right. But why was he able to swim?" Mother asked. "Did you teach him how to swim?" I said. "No, Jane," she answered, "but I can tell you something important. If we try to do a difficult thing, we must believe that we can do it. The boy could swim because he did that."

This morning, on my way to high school, I went to the elementary school to see my mother. All the boys and girls looked happy when they saw her. Now I can tell you who is an everyday hero. She makes all the children happy.
