Nubecita Clara y Oscar
by Aixa E. Rivera Cintrn
Two lessons taught in the fable of Nubecita Clara y Oscar are both the power of friendship and of forgiveness. It's easy to do good to someone who deserves it or treats you with respect. However, in the story, Clara chose to befriend someone who did not deserve her friendship and was there for them when they needed her most. Not everyone is willing to do this, but its something we should all strive to do.
The power of forgiveness calms and frees the souls of those who grant it. It also redeems those who receive this virtue. In the fable, the clouds did not want to make it rain because of old grudges held against the animals. In spite of this, Clara acts for the good of those who offended her and her family, providing water for the animals to live. Not only does the fable of Nubecita Clara y Oscar exemplify lessons of forgiveness, it also shows how the water cycle takes place in a fun, different way.
