Young Man Walks Almost 20 Miles Overnight To First Day On The Job.
He Was Being Followed
He wasn't about to stop anytime soon. He had to make it no matter what, so he kept going at his own pace. He still had 10 more miles to go, and he knew he couldn't waste any time. But when the cop car pulled right next to him, he couldn't help but feel like he may be in trouble somehow. He kept powering on, but there was no hinder the cop's intent. What did the policeman want?

Walter Carr had been through a great deal of tragedies despite his young age. After surviving Hurricane Katrina, he moved to Homewood, Alabama, with his mother. He was looking forward to rebuilding his life. He was determined to get the fresh start he deserved, and he was willing to go to any lengths to do so. The 20-year-old student was dead set on supporting his mother after the tragedy, but he could've never predicted how tough that would be.

While his heart may have been in the right place, Walter wasn't counting on how tough it is for a young man to find a job that pays a decent wage. Many folks are having a really difficult time landing a job in this economy. But that wasn't the only problem he was facing.

Finding a job can be a pretty grueling experience as you have to be ready to face a lot of rejection at first. But you keep knocking on every door until you finally land a position that suits your skills and experience. But what happens when you're too young to have any experience whatsoever? Then you're in competition with countless other folks who are also desperately looking for a job too.
