500 Miles

I picked up a young man by the name of Rodney the other night at a spot downtown and took him back to his home - a small mobile home that he shared with his wife and kids.

We had some small talk - I remarked about the rain we were having and what a mess it was to walk around in. He mentioned that he walks to work every day. 7 miles and back, every day. I don't know why he has to walk and doesn't drive to work and he didn't mention why.

All I could think of was what a huge expression of love to his family. Walking to and back from work every day.



  1. What a dedicated man... lovely xx

  2. Makes you rethink complaining about traffic. That is a great sacrifice he's making for his family.
