Today, I took a trip to St. Louis, MO. While it was a very intense journey, and I had incentive to go there, it wasn't a very pleasant journey, at times. Once undertake n, the journey had to be completed.
People were in danger; others were in pain. Some people, along the way, did their best to do the right thing; meanwhile, others were just plain bad.
At times, I had to stop and take a rest from traveling. Sometimes, I was so focused on the trip, and the people I met along the way, I couldn't stop.
Thankfully, I reached the end of my journey, before the wee hours of the morning.
