When to run.

I love this from the New York Times.  I remember when my son started at a new elementary school.  I went to visit him at recess and was dismayed to hear a parent volunteer yell at the kids to stop running.

“Why?” I asked.

“It’s against the rules, they will get hurt.

“Is it really a rule?  Those kids are running on the basketball court.”

“Yes, but that’s organized.”

I doubled checked the rule with the administration then I withdrew my son.
