The London Marathon is the ideal example of what human nature is really about. It should be absorbed by everyone, but especially politicians, teaching professionals, life advisers and anyone with an 'ology' at the end of their profession.
Not only is it a vast spectacle, run through the most beautiful city in the world, by people of all abilities and all having a common aim and coming from differing backgrounds, it is a reminder that life is really just a simple thing.
It is proof that whatever our ability, social standing, disability or academic achievement we can all be successful and share a common dream.
We just achieve it at different times and by feeling different levels of hardship and pain.
See? The meaning of life...it's simple really!!
