At a time like this in which a terrible accident has occured, emotions run high, and people may use this moment to stress an opinion, or simply morn the loss of a friend or fellow cyclist. Here in the Denver-Boulder area we have the same issues and know that auto and cycle must have a heathy respect for one another at all times. But this is not a message of a coexisting relationship of 2&4 wheels, this is simply to let people know about the young man that was driving. This young man is grieving just as the friends of the rider are. This is not a yound man that has any issues with cyclist. This is a young man that respects life. This is a young man that is now not able to sleep for more that an hour at a time because of the pain he feels for the rider and his family. I have know the driver and his family for over 20 years. They are a compassionate family. They are a caring family. When Katrina hit, they volunteered. They volunteer with abused children. They are caring and right now morn for someone they never met. For those that say hateful things, I am sorry for you. From what I have read about the rider, he was a good person. I wonder if he would want this to be about platforms and issues and not about understanding and forgiveness. This was an unfortunate accident. I hope that we can all step back and remember the passion of the cyclist and have compaaion for the drive.
