This week I had the opportunity to attend the WAVE transit board meeting to join with others to speak on behalf of restoring a line to an area of town that had bus stops removed from its area after a survey was done by a consultant when the residents were not in the neighborhood due to reconstruction of a development. It was a wonderful meeting and I was very impressed with the WAVE board and all those who presented. But one in particular who spoke was a grandmother who has taken charge of the children in her life and has now all 5 of the children under her care. She is the primary caregiver to all these children and shared her efforts now faced with walking close to a mile to a bus stop to access transportation to get food for her family. Today I spy this grandmother and all the grandmother’s like her…all those who preserve, all those who show up and stand up, all those who speak with love and passion, all those who live the solution of care for their loved ones no matter what and no matter what length they must go… prayer is that her story was heard and her walk will not be so long.
