‘2 Million Bikers To D.C.’ Ride To Remember 9/11 [VIDEO]
What started as a simple idea, to remember 9/11 and honor our military, became a massive national event yesterday. It also reshaped the image of bikers.
The 2 Million Bikers To D.C. started as a ride to our country's capital and ended up being the most moving display of patriotism since people came together after 9/11. The media latched onto the story after social media spread the word that the City of Washington, D.C. rejected the permit for the ride to take place, but that a permit for a Million Muslim March (renamed late yesterday) was given.
Views aside, the bikers got the spotlight as the media ignored it and the people of this country did not. THEN the media picked it up yesterday. At last count, over nine-hundred-thousand bikers took part! Along the way, many veterans greeted them. Then average Americans did the same. And I mean Americans from all walks of life, as it should be.
I have to admit, I cried. There was no agenda, just the desire to show their love and respect for this Country, the victims and responders in the 9/11 attacks and the people of the U.S. People who always looked down their noses at bikers embraced them; saw them for what they really are. Some of the most patriotic,giving and caring people on the planet.
I am proud to be the wife of a biker and I am proud to be a red-white-blue blooded American! Thank you bikers and God Bless. We will be there next year!
