Update To ANT Bike Mike Christmas Card For Al

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 20

Seems that we came through for Al! (see here, then see here)

I got a letter from Al ‘The Van man” on Friday. He wanted to thank everyone for all the letters he had received. [I am sure he has gotten a lot more since then].

Al was so impressed with the out pouring of concern that he wrote to me and said that he now feels like not giving up just yet! All said:

“You know how to make a grown man cry. I went to get my mail and I had a bunch of Christmas cards from people I didn’t know, from all over”

“I never thought there were still people like all of you left in the world”

They don’t know me from a hole in the wall, but yet they took the time out of their lives to send me a card and wish me well”

“After receiving your card and all the other cards and letters it picked up my spirits and made me want to go on with my life. It’s nice to know there are people out there who care for others whether they know you or not”

For people who had added a return address Al said he is going to send a note to each of you {this will give him some purpose for a while :}. Al asked about finding out the addresses of the anonymous card senders, but I will write to Al and tell him that many people would rather keep it that way.

I would like to say thank you to all that sent cards, letters, added links, face booked and such to get some needed attention to Al “the van man”

It will be interesting to see how this week ends up with the rest of the cards coming in and I will write to All and see how he is doing.

Thank you everyone for keeping my faith in humanity alive and well this holiday season, you are all amazing people, and Al if you ever read this, stay strong man.

(seems this made its way around the internet far and wide, I love everyone today :)

      For a while it was feeling like stodgy Boston was jumping back into the elite group of city’s whose actions around transportation (and its joined-at-the-hip land-use twin) set the pace for the rest of the country.
