I remember going to LaborReady in Long Island City, Queens to find work. I had enough money for the carfare there; I was hungry and hoped that the agency would find work and pay me for the day. By the end of the day, there was no work for me. I left; I was hot and tired but I had no money to go home. I worked up enough courage to ask a white gentleman with glasses for carfare to get home. I told him that I went to LaborReady and hadn't found any work that day. He gave me $10.00 dollars. I tried to give it back to him but he wouldn't take it. He told me that when I am in a position to do the same, to do it for another person. I said I would. I sure wish I could find that man to tell thank him. It still brings tears to my eyes whenever I think about him.
