"The Earthling" story about older man who was going to die, (has cancer) was trying to make his way back to a spot special to him , he meets up with a 9-10 yr old boy who parents car have just gone over a cliff , killing the entire family, except the boy who had gotten out of the car for a moment. The boy follows the man mainly b/c he is so traumatized and has no other help. but learns to stay alive and in the end buries the man and makes his way back toward home, in this case, some place wher he coud find help. It is truly inspiring, and can't recall who is is singing, but they sing "Half way home": I believe. I cry like a baby every time I see it. The setting is beautiful, a /forest time area, wth lots of streams, moutains, etc.
