The dangers of life are infinite, and among them is safety. ~ Goethe

The other morning while driving through a school zone I noticed a little guy, around 7-years old, walking on the sidewalk.  Well, he wasn’t exactly on the sidewalk, he was next to the sidewalk carefully maneuvering the large stone border.  With care and precision he mapped out each step and although his journey was much slower than that of his classmates, I am guessing it was also much more satisfying.
