A headline crossed my desktop recently. And it made me sad:
“U.S. ranks near bottom among countries for youth fitness, study says”
We’d ranked 47 out of 50.
It didn’t concern me that we’d be among the losers in a global field day. After all, the pressure to always win, rather than to have fun, is a key reason why most kids in the U.S. drop out of organized sports by the time they’re thirteen.
