The boy's only concern was having money. He begged the tree for money, but the tree could only offer its leaves and apples. The boy took the apples and tried to sell them for money. The tree was still happy, even with the greedy boy.
This is my opinion too. Never seen so many spiteful, vindictive and greedy people as there are today. What ever happened to working together for the good of the community? caring instead of hating people! Maybe its just people that are named KES.
