So I'm cruising down Stewart Avenue toward my home the other day and what do I see standing on the corner of Stewart and 24th? A hitch-hiker. I have mixed feelings about these folks. I almost always have this internal battle with myself--pick them up or not?? I know that many people say absolutely NOT. No picking up hitch hikers--it's dangerous! But part of me sees the good in EVERYONE and then I feel like I am the one who is "bad" because I'm not helping someone out who needs it. I was raised to help others. It's in my blood now. So. . .when did helping a hitch hiker cross the line from good deed to dangerous deed?
