True grit:

Gainfully employed
Leland Dix
Flies from Houston to Milwaukee
rents car
on his own ticket
Walks off at end of visit
back to Houston
shouldering his own load,
heavy red duffel bag riding easily
on his back.

Pride pours forth on the part of his parents. A first year math teacher with Teach for America, Lee is driven by his desire to give the 75 fifth grade girls who rely on him his best. No matter what.......uber alles. True grit.
