It's almost as if Valentine's Day and the love it brings has come a bit early for one man in Detroit. By now, you've probably heard about James Robertson, profiled recently in a Detroit Free Press article.
Robertson is a resident of Detroit who walks 21 miles a day to get to his job in the suburbs and hasn't missed a day of work - not even in the middle of snowstorms. His car broke down years ago and the bus routes don't go the entire way so instead of giving up and quitting, he walks. It's an incredible story about perseverance and hard work and a will unlike most.
What's also incredible is the outpouring of support the story prompted. A 19-year-old Wayne State student, Evan Leedy, from Macomb Township, started a GoFundMe drive to help buy Robertson a car. The original goal was $5,000. As of right now, the effort has raised more than $280,000 to help out a stranger in need. Donations have poured in from all over Michigan, the country and even from around the world. If that's not love, I don't know what is.

We were told, "Voting is white folks' business, and ain't nothing for you colored folks to be concerned about."
