Re: Mauriice Murphy , 109,500 miles Bike to Work
Posted by Johncodie on 2/23/10
Mr Murphy worked at a Shoney's resturant for the past ten
years on County Line Road in JACKSON, MS, and lived in the
Madison, MS. Gludstate community. He road his bike to work
each day for the past ten years. That would be the
accumulation of miles commuted since he started at the age
of 26. Another youth was seen walking in the Canton MS area
by the sheriffs department. Situations in the family made
it necessary for him to walk the county road toward school.
It is a sign of youth in Mississippi born in poverty,
wanting more and getting out to obtain the American dream.
How many do we know that is willing to fill those shoes?
