So this morning in Martinsburg, I spotted an old lady walking on the road. At first I drove past her but then I decided to turn around and see if she was okay.
I slowed down and asked if she was okay, she looked at me said nothing and kept walking. Worried I called 911 to report it. I learned that others had called and that the police had spoke to her, she said she was going to the store. I was confused for a second because the direction she was heading had no stores for miles. So I waited. She eventually came across the street and I pulled up, rolled my window down and asked her again if she was okay.
She told me she was walking to the store just as the dispatcher said, but this time I asked her what store exactly. She said the bank and to the store, I asked her where the store was, she said “Hedgesville”.
I was stunned- Hedgesville is 10 mins driving from where we were talking. She leaned on my window and I asked her why she was walking. She went on to tell me she is from Hedgesville, her son died and they moved her to Martinsburg too far from anything she knew. Tears came to her eyes and she “So I am walking.”
