The holidays frequently bring out the good and bad in people.
Our little scooter club had recently taken part in a toy run sponsored by the Marine Corps and the Salvation Army. I had a recent post with a lot of pictures. Over 3,000 motorcyclists participated.
Last weekend we found out that the warehouse that the toys were being stored in was burglarized and over 1,000 toys were stolen. Damn!
The thieves concentrated on electronics, but also took a little bit of everything. Most of the toys were ready for delivery. Hard to believe that someone could actually do something like that. Are times really that hard? Or are some people just unbelievable assholes.
But the good also comes out in people when there are needs. The news hit the papers on Monday morning and by the end of that same day numerous people had stepped up and donated money and more toys. Almost all has been replaced by now and needy children will still have a gift this Christmas.
