Why is the carousel called the merry-go-round? Like grandma says in This clip, it just goes around. We don’t really get all that much out of it. On a carousel we spin in a circle. Sure, some of the horses and elephants and zebras or a lion may rise up and fall down adding to the ride, but it’s not a roller coaster!
A roller coaster has twists and turns and steep drops we don’t always see coming! Life is a roller coaster. There may be times we feel like we are careening off the tracks, but we are always safe. The car 99.99999 percent of the time arrives back at the station. That’s life.
I agree with Grandma I like the roller coaster. It’s full of emotions.
