My untied shoelace changed my life. As I leaned down to re-tie it, I kicked away a few leaves. When I turned my head slightly to look where the leaves had been, I was astonished to see a rubber-banded wad of hundred dollar bills nestled in a little indention in the muddy ground. I was going to cry, this was the blessing I'd been waiting for.. This money was exactly what I needed to get the car that would be my ferry across the US. I needed this car to go to college, the most important part of my education. I'd been $300 short of getting the beat-up Civic Wagon that would change my life. And now I had more then $300. Way more. Enough to get me a plane ticket if I wanted. But no. I worked hard for that car. I was going to get it. I was going to college.
