A 20-year-old Alabama student walked 7 miles just to not be late for the first day of work.
Jenny Lamey tells that one day at 6:30 in the morning the company they had hired to fix the broken car knocked on the door. With him was a young boy still on probation.
Walter Carr’s car had broken down the night before his first day of work and despite that, he had continued to walk for 20 miles in the middle of the night. He says he did all this to show the company how dedicated he was.
Around 4 a.m. some police officers found him on the street and asked him where he was going. After he told them they took him and sent him to eat breakfast. Another officer picked him up and took him to his destination for the remaining 4 miles.
Carr was a Marine and had lost his home in Hurricane Katrina, relocating to Alabama with his mother after the disaster. A GoFundMe account was opened to raise money for Carr to buy a new car. Nothing is impossible unless you say it’s impossible.
Later, the CEO of the company where Carr worked, after seeing his story on Twitter, wanted to help him. Luke Marklin donated his Ford and wanted to donate it himself personally.
When asked about the reaction to his journey, Carr told the outlet he “couldn’t believe it. I did not think that a 20-mile walk would mean anything to anybody. ” The only thing he wanted was to finish his job.
