It’s suggested to know someone you should walk a mile in their shoes.
Imagine the feel of those cowboy boots as you tug on the straps and immerse your feet and thoughts in the life and stride that created that worn leather. Feel how confident you are as you strut across a crowded room. Notice how everyone hears the powerful, echoing sound of the unyielding leather soles as they meet the wood floor beneath your feet. You can almost hear the haunting whistle from the theme song “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”.
Now a code blue alert beckons your attention as you run down the hallway. You hear the sound of your rubber-soled shoes squelch against the polished tile floor. You arrive first to the room and thank your comfortable leather uppers for allowing you to move without concern for yourself as you concentrate on helping a patient during this crisis.
Who are these people? What do they do for a living? What happens in their life? How would it be to walk in their shoes for just a little while?
The fictional stories presented here give you a glimpse of another’s walk through life. So, come on, slip on those shoes and…walk with me.
