Throwaway People

If your mom is still here, do take time to talk, reconcile, laugh...

A couple of weeks ago, my wife and I had an appointment in Arlington, Virginia.  As we were walking toward our destination, we noticed a thin, elderly lady standing near the street corner.  She was exceptionally well-groomed, and dressed in a colorful, neatly pressed outfit.

Leaning on her cane, she was looking around in what appeared to be a confused manner.  We were concerned, because it was a very hot and humid day.  As we approached her, my wife asked if she needed any help.  She smiled sweetly and said that she was looking for her bank, but was not certain she was walking in the right direction.

The rest is here.
