The dog bit the mother's side while she held the baby out of reach. When the crazed animal tried to jump up and bite the eight-month-old baby, the owner warned them not to scream because that would make the slavering animal even wilder.
But Jack yelled to distract it, whereupon the dog dragged him to the ground, leaving the eleven-year-old boy with a four-inch hole in his cheek. He needed plastic surgery and is likely to be scarred for life.
The boy's father rugby-tackled the beast, which had slipped its lead. He eventually trapped it it in a nearby hallway.
The challenge facing each member of the family was to stave off the attack. Only one person found the bravery to take action.
We all face challenges, although they might not be physical.
After more than a week, I've discovered I'm working on the wrong file. Over the last few days, I went through the words laboriously and I cut and pasted different sections into it. After worrying over the problem all night, I asked for help during my morning meditation. The answer came: Use the old file and update the recent changes in my writing.
My mental challenge is filled with complication. Dah! Some of the logical files are hidden in my aging brain.
However, I'm using daily set-backs to help me keep hold of the skills remaining in my brain department. If you don't use it: you lose it.
