Bus Report #679
I got out of the bus at my usual stop and walked up to the first flier I saw, on a streetlight by the bus stop.
It was a MISSING poster for a woman named Amanda Guevara. [UPDATE - Amanda has been found!]
I've been thinking about her all week and hoping that she turns up, or calls home, lets someone know she is all right.
And then I wonder about other missing people.
Jerry Tang disappeared years ago. A faded flier still hangs in the window of the old Busvans building on Clement Street, pleading for his return.
A young man, I can't recall his name, a blond boy smiling in the photo on his MISSING poster, in the window of a cafe on California Street.
Last seen on his way to the bridge.
I look for them in crowds, on the bus, and hope for them, because that's all I can do.
