sitting in a railway station, got a ticket for my destination

brigitte walden (cq) hugs director of vickers house lela jordan before walden and her husband, rick, board a greyhound bus to their home in carlinville, ill. on thursday, sept. 14. the couple had been stranded in west palm beach, spending three nights sleeping on benches at the tri-rail and greyhound bus station, until they found jordan and the homeward bound program, which helps homeless people by purchasing bus tickets to get them to their families and support systems. "i'm so excited. i don't care how long it takes. just get me there," walden said, adding, "i just can't wait to get on that darn bus."

this is not a killer picture, but it is most definitely an important story.
