Every day, this teen walks miles to home from work at 2 a.m., until Ellen surprises him!

One of the many reasons that I love this country is because it’s full of people who work hard to reach their dreams. This is what the American dream is all about. Putting the effort and going after all that you deserve. I have met more responsible and hard-working people that I’ve met those who don’t want to put in the work. This country is all about discipline and a strong work-ethic.

One of those people was my next-door neighbor. She had to work three jobs. She had two jobs Monday to Friday and then had another job that she did on weekends. It turns out she was a single mother of three. They were in school and every day she went to do the best she could to improve their quality of life. I had a talk with her one day and asked her how she could do it.

She told me that she used to be totally dependent on her ex-husband for financial assistance, but that he had gotten involved with the wrong people and ended up going to jail. This left her with all the financial burden plus some debts that they had incurred in. Her plan was not only to get by, she wanted for her and her children to succeed and have a better life.

She put all her kids through school and taught them the meaning of arduous work. One of her sons became an engineer and works for a pharmaceutical company. His name is Jake and one of his dreams was to buy his mother a car, which he did not so long ago. Thanks to his job, he was able to pay for an operation her mother needed among other things.

This mother’s daughter became a nurse at a hospital. She remembered how because of her mother’s condition, they had to go to the hospital several times. The nurses that saw her were very kind and provided her mother with the comfort she needed besides the medications she had. As soon as she finished her studies, she applied for a nursing position in that same hospital where her mother was seen.

There’s a hard-working person born every day, and one of them is certainly the young man in the following video. One day, he is spotted walking along a road at 2 o’clock in the morning. The officer offers to give him a ride home because he figures it is a little weird for him to be walking around at that time. The young man tells the officer he is on his way home from his job. Then the officer does this…
