I love ths woman. She has a great outlook.
(I sincerely hope you've read "To Kill a Mockingbird".) (I'm a bit of a Boo Radley, myself.)
She has written some other articles worthy of note.
I resonated with this one, from which this is a quote :
"If more young people traveled with their eyes and minds open and saw this country, they would have a deeper feeling about it. Adventuring across the country is out of style. Whatever happened to working after school in a grocery store to get enough money to hitchhike to California during your vacation? "
I spent four or five years as an adult travelling by bus or driving or hitchhiking back and forth across this country and Canada. I became intimates with waitresses and truckers, convicts, students, addicts, whores and transients. (Among others.) I have tremendous love for them all which is based on understanding and respect.
Have you seen the movie, "The Mighty?" Well, I loved it.
There are knights and heroes hidden everywhere.
