I was talking about this with my mother-figure yesterday, though I don't know Kevin at all. She was saddened and commented simply, 'it is a dangerous activity' in a very profound manner. For some reason, it struck me like never before, even though I had heard those same words in that particular order of arrangement before.
We all realize the risks when we take up this lifestyle. We understand that things like this can happen when we least expect them. It can be someone else's callous attitude, or can be completely self-inflicted. A lot of times I laugh it off saying that I understand the risks and the dangers, but things like this reinforce the notion like nothing else.
Feel better soon, Kevin. I hope you'll get back on that bike and into the lifestyle that you love so much and for which, no doubt, you've made many sacrifices. Keep up the fight.
