  • Akiak did not want to be left behind so he found his way out of the vet. He ran past all the men and then joined his team again to finish the race.
reflection meaning of the story
Reflection/Meaning of the Story
  • I think the meaning of the story is that you should never give up and finish what you start. Akiak showed this in the story by coming back when he was hurt to finish the race. When I was playing basketball I fell and “ate it” in front of everyone. I was SO embarrassed but, I got back up and kept playing until the quarter was over. I felt great after the game was over that I finished what I started!
