    The ride for your life movement is a challenge one and that makes it so important for all of us to keep spreading the word. I hope everyone involved in the accident is ok.

    Can't we see what is going on? The devil is after the young men through every avenue that he can. A prayer group should be formed for the young men of this territory.

      Sorry to say my dear, but they rather form riding groups rather than prayer groups. But let them keep being reckless with their lives....

        That’s our issue as humans. We want people to sponsor, endorses do things that interest you but you refuse to get those things going yourself. You just made an excuse why you shouldn’t or can’t form a prayer group. The same people can’t do everything. If we all pitched in it will all add up. So while they’re figuring out safety etc why won’t you work on the prayer group and see what happened? #Typicalmindset

    They are making an effort, those 50 who participated. Let’s hope it will make a big difference. To the young man who was injured, I hope you have a speedy recovery. To the driver of the car, I hope you were not injured. The best for everything to turn out right.
