A tale of Thanksgiving kindness in our Nation's Capital

A tale of Thanksgiving kindness in our Nation's Capital

 

In the midst of the holiday shopping onslaught, it's good to remember the true meaning of the season. A friend of mine, Terence Tomlin, a chef and one-time front man of the phenomenal funk band The Mighty Heard, posted a story on Facebook that brought a tear to my eye. I think Terry's story deserves a bigger audience, so here it is, in his own words:

 

"Last Tuesday on my way to work I saw a lady struggling with her three kids. Looking at them reminded me of June 1980 when my mother took me, my brother and sister out of a abusive household leaving Bridgeport for California.

Person Injured in Mount Vernon Hit and Run

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- A man was seriously hurt by a hit and run driver early Friday morning in the Hybla Valley area of Fairfax County, police said. 

I happened at around 2 a.m. on Richmond Highway and Lockheed Boulevard. Police got to the scene and saw a 45-year-old Alexandria man lying in the road, they said.

"It appears that the victim was attempting to cross Richmond Highway from east to west. A vehicle, believed to be a newer SUV, traveling north on Richmond Highway, struck the victim. The SUV stopped momentarily and then sped off, still traveling north on Richmond Highway. The striking vehicle was further described as a red, Jeep Grand Cherokee or something similar. The vehicle should have damage to the right front," police said. 

The man was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. 

If you have information about this incident, call Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
