In training for my journey along the east coast, I was struck by a drunk driver. I couldn't go back to work, and had only wks before I had originally planned on leaving.  Dizzy spells, nausea, and confusion were debilitating, and a disc in my back would often bulge hitting critical nerves and causing my legs to go out. My friends and I planned a rummage sale/car wash to raise the money for me to go on the tour. Tijuana Taxi Co, the restaurant that I worked at, really came together to help. They pulled together their resources to hold a raffle in my honor and helped with the car wash!  People wanted to help and be involved.The concept of togetherness and community never struck me so thoroughly. This time was life changing for me. Now I realize it was the beginning of learning to count on others and ask for help when I need it.
