One of the most important groups of people in the world is the storyteller. If a storyteller can make good use of his imagination, he can change the can make us feel sorry for those we mistreat. He can change the way we look at people who are different from us. He can stir our hearts towards our country or he can make us bitterly hate it. The power belongs to the storytellers, for they change and shape our reality with their little stories. They are everywhere telling us stories. Are their stories true or just products of their fertile imaginations? We know stories of dragons are false, don't we? Are they? Maybe, the storyteller wants us to think. Maybe, the dragon is a symbol that represents something else. Maybe, the casts of characters in his silly stories are not people at all. Maybe, they are ideas, emotions, and representations of institutions. His childish stories may not be so childish after all. Maybe, we are childish for not seeing what the storyteller has told us. His silly stories may hold the key that we can use to unlock the door of true storyteller grows old and tired now. The campfire burns low and soon it shall be out. When the fire is gone, he shall be gone. We must take a moment out of our lives and sit by the fire and hear him speak. Let us hear him and remember his stories, for when the fire is out, it will be just us left to tell the story. We must continue the story and search for its meaning. If we cannot find the meaning, we must build a fire and become the storyteller. If we keep the story going, someday we will find its meaning.
