He Plugged in his GPS and Headed to High Point

It’s happened a couple of times, I’ve encountered Burmese young men, having arrived from an impoverished country and situation come to visit us in High Point.
They have traveled across states in a sometimes gently used car.  How did they navigate, they plugged in their GPS and punched in the address.

I am amazed when I think of how this represents such a fresh start for these young people  facing uncertainty and privation in Burma but now discovering opportunity and freedom in America.   And to think they are so cleverly using cutting edge technology that many Americans have not yet embraced.
