Today You, Tomorrow, Me

Feb 4, 2024-- "In 2010, Justin Horner was driving down a busy freeway in Portland, Ore., when his tire blew out. He pulled over to the side of the road and made a sign that said he needed help.

They were Latino, and their young daughter acted as translator between her parents' Spanish and Horner's English, so that they could work together to fix Horner's car. They took about an hour, starting with the father finding a log on the side of the road, and using it to lift the car.
