A short monologue.
In the races of life are records set which last only a short time, but in the race of life the marks set by men of honor shall forever stand, and will be honored by, and be a tribute to, their God

Set: blank

Lighting, Sound, Costumes: standard

Sample of script:

actor comes on stage

When all is said
The pistol sounds and hearts beat fast,
We do our best, we strive to exceed
The mark set by some faceless former achiever.
Training and preparing, always striving
To be the fastest, the stongest, the most fit.
For we tell ourself no one remembers
Who came second in the big race.
Yet only one thing is sure and certain,
Someday, somewhere, someone
Will be faster, will shatter our record,
Will be the new champion of the multitudes.
And in an instant our achievements
Become a soon forgotten blurred notation
In some dusty, frayed old record book.
But men of character and substance take heed . .
