The Black Balloon – March 7.2011

By Neil Eskelin, Daily Jump Start

On the streets of New York City a balloon salesman knew how to attract a crowd.

Before making his first sale, he took a white balloon, filled it with helium gasand it floated into the air on the string. Next, he inflated a red balloon andthen a yellow one. As children gathered around to buy his wares, a little  boy looked up at the balloons and eventually asked, “Mister, if you filled a black balloon, would it go up, too?” The man bent down and looked the boy in the eyes and said, “Of course. It’s not the color of the balloon, it’s what’s inside that makes it rise.”
