There is a good message of hope in this, but the misspellings and misuse of words makes it difficult to read. (Wanders instead of wonders; clothes dirty and holey (not holy); knapsack not nap sack). It's people like the one driving the old car that can sometimes change lives. Good story, though, and it follows logically.

I enjoyed this, though I endorse the comments above. I did feel a little ambivalent about the young man in the car - his words were'nt exactly loving. Spell-check carefully, add a few more commas, and you've got real potential to write well.

great view for the "Not-so Uncommon Man" Being the king of typos even those didnt distract from the story, good job on the message plot. Do a second or even third edit before submitting and the work would really shine.

This is definitely a diamond in the rough--there are some wonderful descriptions here, and some very compelling writing. I strongly urge you to find a kindly soul who will work with you on the mechanics of writing, because this piece has so much potential--it's a shame that many will dismiss it because of the booboos.
