Wednesday’s Post Is Full Of…Pride

27 Oct

A while back, I posted about some good news I received. That news was made public today, and I’m bursting with pride. I’m proud of the city officials involved, proud of the people who made donations, wrote letters or helped the cause in any way – large or small.

At the end of March, a friend of mine was killed on his motorcycle when a driver made a u-turn in a ridiculous place to make a u-turn. A Facebook page was started a few days later, with the goal of organizing a memorial ride to raise awareness about motorcycle safety – and to raise money to go towards efforts of getting a barrier placed where the u-turn occurred.

Well, 900 Facebook fans, one memorial ride, and lots of calls and letters to elected officials later…and the goal has been achieved. And, we even get to donate the money raised to charity.

Today is a good day. A day that reminds me that if you believe in something enough, stay dedicated (and are persistent as all-get-out), you might just change a few things that need changing.
