there are more than a hundred people waiting in line at the drugstore. it seems that there was an outage and people ran short of everything, most importantly their medicines. it didn’t matter that carrie had already filled her prescriptions, she felt like she needed to plan ahead, to obtains her prescriptions for the future in case something like this hapened again. carrie was sad that she had to do this, her health was less than perfect and it seemed to be waning day by day. a man standing in line in front of her turned and asked why she was waiting so long with the others. she didn’t want to tell him that she felt anxious about the future and that she was fearful of running out. “oh, I just thought it might be wise to plan ahead,” was all she said. He nodded and wasn’t going to answer. then he said quietly, “My wife is dying, and i should be there caring for her. but she needs her meds and i’m afraid that if i lose my place in line i won’t be able to get them. carrie thought a moment. she noticed that his tennis shoes were ragged and that his pants were too large around the waist. “You go ahead,” she said. “I’ll keep your place in line. And if you don’t come back, give me the prescription and i’ll have it filled.” But he hesitated. He didn’t know her. Finally, he sighed and handed over the prescription.
