It was early on a Saturday morning - before sunrise - and, for the ten of us that had met at Fair Park in Dallas, our volunteer work was just beginning. With hundreds of cars parked for a local half-marathon, we quickly divided up the rows to flyer for the May 18 Disco 5K and 10K run - one of the super fun, upcoming Dallas Athletes’ races that just so happens to benefit Taylor’s Gift Foundation.
Making my way through the sea of parked cars, mechanically lifting the windshield wiper arms enough to keep the flyers in place, I was doing a lot of looking at people’s dashboards. Seeing so many in such a short amount of time, I never would have guessed that one could learn so much about another person, simply by seeing a dashboard.
Even more so, I never would have expected that such a small task could move me in such a big way.
