Injecting Fairness

May 21, 2018


As Sidney was pitching her best game of the season on Saturday afternoon, Haven re-injured his latest elbow fracture in the bleachers as he tried to push open his umbrella.  As Sidney smiled and listened to the opposing coach compliment her on her pitching at a nearby restaurant after the game, Haven stood several feet away clutching his arm in pain.

Sidney is playing and pitching this season for Haven.  She’s raising money for kids like him, in his name.  She’s basically using her arm for him.  And as he watched her use her arm today, he injured his. How sadly ironic.

And unfair.

The world is unfair.  But, we aren’t powerless against the unfairness.  We can each do something each day…no matter how small…to make it a little less unfair.  We can all do something each day that injects a little bit of fairness into one of the many pockets of unfairness that surround us.  Can’t we?  I think we can.
