Boy healed of play injury

Originally published in Der Christian Science Herold

My son Mark was at his friend's house for a birthday party. Four girls and six boys were there. It got pretty wild. Toward the end of the party, they played "girls-get-boys tag." And that's when it happened. Mark didn't want to get caught by a girl. He wasn't at all careful, and ran with full force face-first against one of those huge stone flower containers.

It must have hurt a lot. Mark tried to be brave. He really wanted to just go home. But his friends' parents wanted to take him to the hospital right away because his cheek was torn open and bleeding so badly.
