5. 2 examples from the story that showed their belief
As my day fills with stress, crowded commutes and endless deadlines, I think of Duncan home alone.
Running through Chicago neighborhoods with Duncan has changed all that. Now when people smile at us, I smile back, and if Duncan stops to say hello I stop and greet them, too.
