There He Goes But For the Grace of God

Watching a program on child abuse,
the man shuddered and relived the
moment he picked up his baby boy
out of the crib. The baby wouldn’t
stop crying and the man shook his
infant son but caught himself and
put the screaming baby back down.
That baby went on to be an All-Amer-
ican swimmer, scholar and Ironman
Tri-Athlete. The man shuddered at
the thought of what might have been
but, by grace, wasn’t and never
would be.
