As you will see, NO buses run on Sundays or after dark and people do work on Sundays and after 6 PM throughout the week. So, how are they supposed to get to and from work or shopping for that matter? This is where I wish that politicians would place themselves in our shoes for at least a week to see the burdens we face.
If I am scheduled to work on a Sunday or at nights, I am out of luck and I am then at the mercy of Lindy's Cab Company. How would you like a life like that? I have had friends and family say to me: "Call me if you need a ride" and while I am grateful, it is NOT their responsibility to get me to and from work. It is mine.
Do you finally get it now of the hardships we who do not drive for medical or economic reasons face? This is our world and welcome to it.
As a former political activist who routinely receives emails asking exorbitant amounts of moneys to donate to this campaign or that, it sickens me when I have to plead to all of you to help me get from point A to point B by bus. At times, I feel as if no one is listening to my pleas by only wish money sent to all of you in order to help you get elected or re-elected. Well my wallet is closed shut!
