The Gift of Time
The last wishes of Alexander the Great………
On his death bed, Alexander summoned his army generals and told them his three ultimate wishes:
- The best doctors should carry his coffin …
- The wealth he has accumulated (money, gold, precious stones) should be scattered along the procession to the cemetery ….
- His hands should be let loose, so they hang outside the coffin for all to see !!
One of his generals who was surprised by these unusual requests asked Alexander to explain.
