The Killer Pothole

His Resolution is to Smile again

Walking home this evening, I ran into a little boy, Obadious (o-bah-dee-ous) and his mother Ruth Gaye, hurriedly rushing past me; the child was in serious pain. His facial expression churned my stomach. I couldn’t imagine what this child was experiencing inside.
