The Burden of Responsibility

In a rarity for this year we actually got some valley snow in northern Utah last week. While I was walking to the train station (there is a high-speed train along the Wasatch Front called FrontRunner), walking through a heavy snowfall, I noticed this view ahead of me. I felt it was a poignant moment as these people were braving the elements to go to work or school - to go and do something they’d probably rather not be doing given the conditions. I thought about responsibility, and that many of the people going to work in such conditions were being true to responsibilities they have accepted.

We don’t often celebrate the quiet efforts of so many who undertake to do things they’d rather not do in order to provide and care for loved ones - present or future. I thought this little photo would help to illustrate it just a bit so I stopped along the path, covered my phone with my umbrella, and took this shot.
