Hit and Run

We have had two hit and runs in the news in as many weeks. What is with that? The first was on a rainy night. The woman hit was in a motorized wheel chair. Dark, bad visibility, low to the ground -- an accident. But why run from the scene? And then why run from the courthouse? Scared, yes of course. But running only compounds the very sad situation.

And now a little boy hit, a two year old. Playing and wandering into the street. A driver, going too fast, hits and runs. The driver, by the plates was identified. And now, the accident is worse.

Why do we run? Not only from these terrible accidents, but from smaller things in life. Life and times are seldom made better after running.
