Literal Comprehension

“The Great Answer” is a beautiful story written by an American Journalist Fulton Oursler. This story is related to the Second World War when the people of France were suppressed and tried to go to America being refugees.

And, there was a problem with crossing the Spanish border. Also, a German policeman followed them. One day night a lot of refugees gathered to discuss how to cross the border, also a woman had four years of children and she was also scared to cross the border.

The same night a guider came at them and let them towards the mountain secretly to cross the border. They started climbing, and during the climbing, three old men were too tired of climbing and unable to walk anymore.

However, the guide gave them the responsibility to take care of these four years of lady one by one. After continuously walking the whole night and half of the day in the early evening they crossed the Spanish border. They are full of joy crossing the Spanish border.


The main theme of this text is that nobody is like to be suppressed and freedom is the most important and primary right for the human being.

Selfless service is the most important in human life when we are in a problem we have to praise God, we should not escape from it rather than add another difficulty, just like those old men.

We have to be optimistic, courageous, and enthusiastic in front of the problem. It also taught that the initial facing problem gives positive results in the future. Also, it says success welcomes those who are never tired of doing hard work.
