Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Just Beyond Corpus Christi

While traveling on route 77 and passing through Victoria, Texas I stopped to fuel up. While I was fueling, Joyce spotted this memorial that was littered with water filled milk and soda bottles.
This sign was posted at the memorial. Joyce was able to find out that on May 14, 2003 a refrigerator truck that had left Brownsville stopped here for fuel. The trucks cargo was sixty (60) illegal immigrants that were being smuggled into Texas. When the driver stopped to fuel, he noticed that the refrigeration unit on the truck was not running. He open the back door to find that the people in his truck were dying due to the heat. Of the sixty, nineteen had given their lives for a chance to live in this country. How sad!
The day has come to an end and we are in a Walmart parking lot. We will be moving on to the King Ranch in the morning.
