A metaphor of life

This is the “Tot Trot” at Saturday’s Polar Bear run east of Marietta, Georgia. The “Tot Trot” is one of four events that features the 5K.   The trot  for two and three-year-olds is from one side of the gymnasium to the other.  As in life, the children are going in different directions.  Some run straight to the finish, one or two seem uncertain about where they’re going, and one little girl is crying as she heads back to her father.    It’s not unlike the spectrum of behavior we see among us adults.
