Friend and fellow blogger Alex Teal mentioned this story on his blog after I mentioned this story of the subway near-miss.
It’s amazing how being a parent changes your perspective. When I saw the stroller roll onto the tracks (scary level 10) and then the train run over the stroller (scary level 1.21 gigawatts), my brain reminded me that I, too, push strollers and that the same kind of thing could’ve happened to me. I can’t imagine. I won’t. But I will say that we are subject to dangers and graces to which we are entirely oblivious. I’m cognizant of the dangers and thankful for the graces — the Grace — that works in ways we will never fully understand.
