Edwards and Keselowski – Seen through a Child’s Eyes

It suddenly occurred to me that the Edwards/Keselowski situation reminded me of two guys fighting at school surrounded by a crowd of excited onlookers. Half of them are screaming “Let the boys fight,” while the other half are saying “Someone stop them please. “

I really felt like I was a kid again when I started reading the varied opinions and I couldn’t help but reflect back to lessons learned as a child.
The arguments have gone something like this.
“There’s nothing wrong with what happened.”
“Why?”
“Because.”
“Because why?”
“It’s just racing.”
“But couldn’t someone get hurt?”
“Yes but everyone is doing it.”
“Well if everyone jumped off a cliff, would you?”
“No, but Brad hit Carl first.”
“Don’t you know that two wrongs don’t make a right?”
“But I have to stand up to the bullies or they won’t respect me.”
“Haven’t I told you to treat others like you want to be treated?”
“But what about the “have at it boys” policy?”
“Everything in moderation.”
“Well now I’m confused.”
“Don’t feel bad, we all are.”
