In 45 years behind the wheel, I’ll bet that I’ve racked up a staggering 540,000 miles—based on the
national average of 12,000 miles a year. U.S.
That’s the equivalent of going 21.6 times around the earth!
“Wow, what an accomplishment!” I first thought. I even started to feel a little cocky.
But then I started to wonder. How many of those miles went:
- To visit the sick?
- To feed the hungry?
- To cheer up someone feeling down?
- To run a chore for a shut-in?
How many were devoted:
- To community service?
- To the cause of peace?
- To promote racial harmony?
- To work for equality?
I’m not bragging any more because, well, I have no ready answers.
How about you?
