Today in Selma! ‘It happened near historic Brown Chapel AME Church on Martin Luther King Jr. St…’
…and inside a public housing project named for legendary educator George Washington Carver.
The absolute best part of this news report are the over a dozen paragraphs expressing astonishment and admiration for the late innocent bystander’s laudable willingness and ability to… do his job, as a janitor:
Climbing ladders to ceilings isn’t something normally found in job descriptions, but he took it upon himself to get it done.
His dedication to his job was appreciated and he was surprised to find out he had been selected for a “Rising Star Award” by the Selma-Dallas County Chamber of Commerce.
He was always on time and rarely sick. When he didn’t show up we all knew he had to be under the weather. It became the topic of conversation among coffee sippers.
