I think the story of this regatta gives us a good example of how we should live in life. All of us muddle through our lives in some fashion. Oh sure some of us enjoy the life of Riley, and others struggle, but we somehow get by. For the most part we manage our journey through the waters of life. But then there are certain folks who push their way to the front, who demand special service, who feel that they should do whatever they want and don't care how their actions affect others. When even a few people act as if they are self important and privileged, others suffer. The bumpy waves of life would be easier for all if a few individuals did not go through life at full throttle. Blessings.
