In an age long ago, there lived a handsome Prince who was beloved for his joy, kindness and generosity of spirit. The Prince’s father, the King, recognized that his son was very special and did not want him embittered and tarnished by the world. So, the King built a high wall around the palace and kept all knowledge of the darkness and despair of the world away from his son. In the presence of the Prince, none were allowed to speak of sickness, war, poverty or the world beyond the Palace. In this way, the King kept his son sheltered from the ills and sadness beyond the Palace walls.
As the years passed, the Prince married and had a family of his own. While his life in the court and family activities kept him occupied and for the most part content, the Prince was beginning to feel a faint stirring within his breast that he could not identify and this caused him concern. When he spoke to his wife, the Princess about it, she told him, what she had been instructed to say by the King; it was a feeling that would pass and not to be concerned.
