This morning on the way to work I saw this jogging guy out on the trail by my place. I see him most days. Severely obese. You can tell every step is just painful for him. But see him most days out there giving it everything he has. Today he was stopped. Hunched over. Crying. I was at the stop sign so rolled down my car window and shouted "You got this! You can do it!" He looked up almost in shock and said "Thank you. I needed to hear that. I was about to give it up." He waved, wiped his face and started back down the trail. It's a great mornina.
Ruby Cramer Bernie's mittens are made by Jen Ellis, a teacher from Essex Junction, Vt. She gave them to him 2+ years ago and was surprised when he began wearing them on the campaign trail. They are made from repurposed wool sweaters and lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles. - - Twitter for iPhone
