My son-in-law got his race car tonight. It is a mini-sprint…several tracks in Iowa support this series of racing. He is a huge race fan whether it be NASCAR or sprint cars…he loves everything about racing..it was passed down from his dad…
This car came from Caly-fornia. It was delivered about 1/4 mile away from their house – they live on gravel…big semi pulls up and has to unload 2 of the 5 cars and 1 m/c to get the racer out. Pickup trucks with flashers were stationed at each hill as a warning. It was quite an event. I just hope he is safe!!
Which brings me to tonight’s ponderance….why are some of us willing to jump out of airplanes for sport or career, why do some of us have no problem dangling above the world building buildings, climbing towers, cutting limbs off trees, roofing houses, flying to the moon, running into burning buildings, take a gun wilding psycho with hostages down…and some of us are content with a good book on the couch with the golden retriever at our feet in front of the fire…what makes some love adventure and some abhor and fear leaving their town…why do crazy people have normal kids and why do God fearing christians have murderers…what makes one sign up to defend our country while others flee to Canada …are they afraid or are they making a statement. Who carries a sign during an arbitrary civil issue and who says…ya, whatever…what exactly makes us who we are …. is it nurture or nature…is it tomato or tomotoe
Until next time….
