Hope for success never abandoned



“I have a motto on my bedroom wall: ‘Obstacles are what you see when you take your eye off the goal.’ Giving up is not my style. I just want to do something that’s worthwhile.” — Chris Burke

Editorial Comment

This is the second of a five-part series illustrating one man’s determined efforts to move his personal possessions from one location to another.

His arduous trek began at 2:40 pm on a pleasant Sunday afternoon and lasted four hours. I periodically photographed his progress and noted that his resolve never flagged and his sense of optimism remained at a high level.

The small insert on the top right shows him crossing a busy intersection. His major challenges lay ahead as he entered an abandoned schoolyard with its jagged terrain and shifting grassy patches.
