Cargo (Common Sense)

Cargo (Common Sense)

My job calls me to document changes to the building, but I’m more interested in the changes to the workers. 
Some are the third generation in a family dedicated to skilled, hard, dirty work: slate roofing in one-hundred degree heat comes first to mind. Some bring their kids to work to teach them to aim for college. Some gave up white-collar careers to build things. 
Some overcome fears of heights, of bees, of lightning to get the job done. Some take crazy risks.
Dedication perches high on a ladder outside my screened window, wearing new steel-toed sneakers and honestly distressed cargo pants.
