The Most Poignant Moment




When I arrived at the ER Tuesday, my brother was lying on a gurney, tubes and lines everywhere. It was chaotic and unpleasant as such places tend to be. Yet, as I drew close to him I saw his hand was reaching up and was clasped tightly by his dear old friend, Tom. There they were these two worn out beat up, rode hard and put away wet, old "biker" guys: tattoos and piercings, balding heads with long pony tails and longer beards, rings on every finger and they were holding hands. Tom, not in the greatest shape himself after a car fell on him, being strong for his bro. Ride or die, brothers forever.

My husband is a biker, and I can tell you that is absolutely true of most of them that I have known over the years. I remember Mojo. The first time I saw him I was concerned, to say the least. Long hair, chains, earrings, skulls ... tough looking dude. I found out his name was Terry and he loved cats. Just the sweetest guy. I have found that they are very loyal to each other. I hope your brother gets better. "Hugs"

Thanks so much. I love your story. In the many yearsI have been around my brother and his riding buddies I have seen repeatedly how well they take care of each other.

A special bond in a world where there isn't much of that.

What a beautiful moment <3 Thank you for sharing it with us. This choked me up in the best way. That kind of support is so important for healing; it will go a long way, I really believe that.

Praying for your brother and his brother <3
