Justin is a friend of mine from Progressive International Corp (not the insurance company) in Seattle.
Justin, sometimes I think of that trip we took to China for work in 2011. There’s a particular image from that trip that sticks out in my mind, of us having a conversation in the van. I don’t remember which factory we were coming from, or which factory we were going to, or what we were talking about, but whatever it was, the image of that conversation brings me strength.
Today started out kind of rough, and I held the image of that conversation in my mind, to get the strength I needed for the day. Things turned up as the day’s walk went on. I found some money on the road, I stumbled into a Syrian refugee camp, and I reached the Euphrates river. All in all, it turned out to be a good day.
