bike theft

Petty crime is petty, that’s for sure.

There is nothing more frustrating than being the victim of a pointless, small crime.  For instance, having your bike stolen.  Sure, there are bicycles out there worth thousands of dollars, and those are almost exclusively owned by grown-adult hobbyists who have the ways, means, and security to keep their investments safe.  These are high-dollar targets for criminals who know what they are getting themselves into

But stealing the bike of a teenager?  That’s just sleazy.  And pilfering the ride from a cancer-fighting young man is just plain despicable.

That’s why police in Florida made an extra effort to set things straight this week.

Daylin Campbell got a mountain bike for Christmas, but he wasn’t able to ride it because he’s been battling leukemia.

The 13-year-old had been building up his strength and looking forward to taking the bike out for a spin.On Monday, somebody stole it off the porch of his home in Lake Wales, Florida.

Daylin was upset, certainly, but also confused.  The young man just couldn’t understand why anyone would want to steal his bike, which was adorned with “Daylin Strong” stickers – something that made the ride especially personal.
Then, this happened.  [Author’s note:  Now is a good time to reach for the tissues.]

The police had thought of everything…including a bike lock.

Now Daylin’s only worries are beating Leukemia and getting enough good weather to cruise around the neighborhood.

Craft Beer Customers Leave Unopened Can of Pale Ale on Bar for Fallen Soldiers

The gesture did not go unnoticed.

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.

Total Strangers Gather to Celebrate Life of Korean War Vet on Memorial Day Weekend

America has not forgotten those who sacrificed it all for our freedom.

Amid the barbecues and Budweisers, it can be difficult to temper our Memorial Day celebrations with the true reason for the remembrance. Those of us with a three day weekend are likely gassing up the boat, gathering our grill supplies, and lathering on the sunscreen in anticipation of Memorial Day – a holiday that is far too often relegated to the realm of “hey it’s summer”-style shenanigans. We mustn’t ever forget why we have the day off, however. Memorial Day is truly a day of solemn reflection on those we’ve lost in the line of American military duty – a fact that is all too often overshadowed by these celebrations. But not for the fine people of Ohio, who showed the world what compassion is all about this weekend. A public call for mourners to attend the Ohio funeral of an unaccompanied 90-year-old Korean War veteran Saturday resulted in an overwhelming response. “It being Memorial Day weekend it was the right thing to do to come up and honor his life,” Suzanne Koehne told Fox 19. She attended the funeral in Cincinnati after driving nearly 100 miles to get there from Louisville, Kentucky. The turnout was incredible. An estimated 400 strangers, like Koehne, showed up to pay final respects to Army veteran Hezekiah Perkins whose only family, a daughter, couldn’t make it because of poor health, Fox 19 and other media reported. The gesture is just another reminder of the inherent greatness of the American public, and their reverence for those who sacrificed it all for our freedoms.
