Letters: Be proud

Injured motorcycle rider thanks those who helped after accident in Sooke

Re: “Compassion Shown,” July 31, 2013, Sooke News Mirror

The above mentioned letter to the editor was about a serious motorcycle/car accident that took place on July 24 at Sooke Road and Woodlands.

I was the bike rider in question, and would like to take an opportunity to thank everyone involved. The letter was written by Amber McIntyre who apparently was on the scene immediately to help, and she mentions the many others who stopped and helped however they could.

I can’t begin to tell you how heartened and grateful I am for everyone who responded, both the professionals and the ordinary people who stopped to direct traffic, keep me comfortable, call for help, etc.

I am still not allowed/able to walk and have a long road of rehab ahead, but it is wonderful to realize that there all those good people out there.

Please all be proud of yourselves.
