On Monday we went out in the boonies to Simla, CO and watched some BULL RIDING (YEAH!). It was pretty awesome. We went with Tommy Taylor who is a professional Bull Rider. That night however, he didn't ride he was helping others practice and he was bull fighting. It was a lot of fun. Everyone was doing great and enjoying themselves. Tuff, the guy who owns the place we were at even let us sit on a bull. They are some powerful creatures. There was a young man there who was a very good rider. He rode 3 bulls and on all of them it looked like he was in complete control. He decided to take on one of the bigger bulls (Although I guess small bull is an oxymoron...) When he got on he looked so calm I eve thought to myself I don't think he even needs bull fighters he is great! He rode the bull for a little more than 8 seconds but he got caught when he was trying to jump off and ended up getting tossed off. As he was trying to reorient himself the bull charged him and literally flipped him in the air. Before he had time to land the bull was already looking for round 2. Some people were screaming and others were speechless but it was clear that he was going to get smashed into the side of the wall by the huge 2 ton bull. All seemed hopeless until Tommy stepped in. He LITERALLY grabbed the bull by the horns and virtually tossed it aside. The bull snorted and then ran back into it's pen. I was stunned. I knew Tommy was strong (he also played football for the Air Force academy).. but I had no idea he could do such a thing! After the dust cleared and it was clear the young man would be alright, I asked Tommy how he was able to step in and toss the bull like that. His answer was simple but powerful. He had been with this bull for a number of years and the bull recognized him every time he went there. The bull definitely did not fear him but nonetheless he respected him. If it was any other bullfighter the bull would have surely plowed right on through. However He was the only one who could step in and save him. It reminded me of the powerful message of our saviors atonement.
Some years ago, President Gordon B. Hinckley told “something of a parable” about “a one room school house in the mountains of Virginia where the boys were so rough no teacher had been able to handle them.
