One of my favorite all-time movies is “Seabiscuit (2003)”, a story about an undersized Depression-era racehorse who achieves many victories on the racetrack that not only lifts the spirits of the team, but also the nation. There is one particular scene where Red Pollard’s (the young jockey) parents abandon him at an early age. As his parents walk away he is engulfed with fear and anxiety; an overwhelming feeling of desertion as he is thrusted into the harsh world.
