Each of us is well acquainted with the tales of the great story-teller Hans Christian Andersen. But what do they teach us? They teach us to be strong and to win, relying on our good heart - just like the steadfast tin soldier; they teach us to trust and love the people around us - just like little Thumbelina; they teach us to believe in ourselves and in what awaits us in life - just like the Ugly Duckling. They teach us not to be discouraged and to fight to the end. They teach us to be good people.
