Walter Carr refused to accept defeat-and his dedication was rewarded handsomely.
When Hurricane Katrina destroyed his home in New Orleans in 2005, his family moved to the Birmingham area, and Carr continued to pursue his high school diploma, graduating from G.W. Carver High School as the only boy in his class from the school's Academy of Health Sciences.
It was his first day as a mover for Bellhops Moving Company that day, and he chose to make the long trek to their house from Homewood to Pelham Alabama on foot after his vehicle broke down the day before. And again, and again, until finally, on the 16th try, Carr felt he had done a good enough job and submitted his application. Her words on social media broke through to the company's headquarters in Chattanooga.
He didn't know anyone else on his work team, so he couldn't call them for a ride.
Lamey added that she asked Walter if he wanted to rest before the rest of the crew arrived, but he declined and got started with work.
Once police heard his story, they took Carr to breakfast.Читайте также: 11-year-old Indian girl raped by 15 men for months
He told local news that his mother and father had raised him to help others, and he said that he plans to use his new auto to do just that.
A group of police officers eventually picked him up a few hours in, took him to breakfast, and then took him to his job. Lamey also set up a GoFundMe page to thank Carr for his tireless efforts and help him with his auto troubles. "What he had endured just to be there to help me with my move". He said no and got to work.
"I want to show my job I am what I said I was in my interview-that I'm dedicated".
"It seemed like the auto was going to be put to a lot better use", Marklin said. As for Carr, he said he was just trying to prove that he cared about his job. Nothing is impossible that you make possible.
Jenny Lamey, a customer of the moving firm, wrote on Facebook that she and her husband had awoken early last Friday to prepare for movers who were due to arrive at around 08:00. "God blessed me so much". ". It's that "Never die" attitude".
"I am honestly blown away by him", Marklin says of Carr. "I can only be defeated if I allow myself do be defeated". When I read Walter's story, it was something that I wasn't even sure that I would do. "He certainly made an impact on us!" "I just can't tell you how touched I was by Walter and his journey. I am in total awe of this young man!"При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
