The Rabbit and the Turtle
One day a rabbit was boasting about how fast he could run. He was laughing at the turtle for being so slow. Much to the rabbit’s surprise, the turtle challenged him to a race. The rabbit thought this was a good joke and accepted the challenge. The fox was to be the umpire of the race. As the race began, the rabbit raced way ahead of the turtle, just like everyone thought. The rabbit got to the halfway point and could not see the turtle anywhere. He was hot and tired and decided to stop and take a short nap. All this time the turtle kept walking step by step by step. He never quit no matter how hot or tired he got. He just kept going. However, the rabbit slept longer than he had thought and woke up. He could not see the turtle anywhere! He went at full-speed to the finish line but found the turtle there waiting for him.
What is the moral value of the story?
Narrative text adalah salah satu jenis teks yang bertujuan untuk menghibur dan memberikan pesan modal kepada pembacanya. Teks di atas menceritakan tentang semangat pantang menyerah dari seekor kura-kura dan kelinci yang sombong dengan kekuatannya. Hal tersebut terlihat dalam kalimat "all this time the turtle kept walking step by step by step. He never quit no matter how hot or tired he got. He just kept going". Pesan moral yang dapat dipetik adalah jangan pernah memandang remeh siapa pun karena lawan yang lemah bisa berubah menjadi lawan yang tidak terkalahkan jika dia berjuang keras. Orang yang memiliki penampilan yang biasa saja mungkin tenyata menyimpan potensi yang luar biasa daripada kita.
