That is awesome.. I'm sorry I missed this gathering.

But I'm also very proud and humbled to have such great people who do these things as real life friends of mine.

We (Rachel and I) absolutely love you guys!!

What a truly beautiful story. It brought tears of sadness (for the family) joy (for the little boy) and disbelief (that there are still people out there doing random acts of kindness) to my eyes reading it. What a wonderful group of people you all are.

That was an awesome story! I also was choked up from reading. I also have a little son and it really made me think about that little boy. You are a great person to be able to share something that we are so passionate about with a little boy in the way that you and your friends did. It made me rethink the way that I see things and share this passion I have for our mutual "Friend" with others. I hope that I have a chance to make somebody's day in a similar way in which you did.

I also would like to say that the pictures look great. Congrats on a very successful day! I wish you continued success with this annual event and I wish the little boys family well.

Yeah, I never would have got those last pictures, had it not been for you grabbing me and telling me to start snapping pics.

Reminds me of a long story that's going to get shortened.
Went to a test and tune at local drag strip. After a few runs a guy comes up and says "it's my sons 17th bday, what would it take to get you to take him down the track." My response was "nothing, get in." I let him keep the time slip of course.

Point is kids love Camaros. Mine is black so they don't call it Bee, but definitely just need to embrace it if you have one.
If I had handed my story to my English 101 teacher she probably would have read it, handed it back and said "Great story! Now start cutting."

Yours is a great example of telling the most with the least. I'll bet that kid's dad was a hero after getting him that ride. Very cool!

Thanks.

You will.

The catch is that you may never know the good you've done. But don't let that stop you. I just got lucky enough to have people around to point me in the right direction to see what was happening. I hope you will have that same luck too!
