An American Tragedy
Trucking along with Bill I see both natural beauty and harsh ugliness. When you travel this way, you see things as they really are. There is no controlled environment, as you create on a vacation. You cannot pick and choose what you see while trucking along America's roads.
There is no looking away because it is hard. It is there, and it should be noticed. I find it important to look, to really see what and who is actually there. I also find it important to share what I see. Avoiding it doesn't mean it isn't there. Looking away doesn't solve it.
I hope to remind others of their own blessings. However, I also pray for solutions of improvement for those less fortunate. Their story needs to be told, because they do matter.
The reality of life is that there is both beauty and ugliness. You cannot have one without the other. In fact, one should make you appreciate the other. And that should make you look.
