I have a proposition for everyone that benefits all of us, as well as those battling depression and suicidal tendencies.
If you have a facebook, you might have seen the 4guys 1 mission group about suicide prevention and how they're biking from Waco Texas to anchorage Alaska. well suicide is a topic thats close to my heart, and i wanted to support and make they're dream bigger.
so I was thinking.. why not make it something everyone can do? What if.. we did a bike trip from San Antonio to Austin. it'd take us two to four days or so, and we could do it during spring break or the first week of summer or something like that, that gives us enough time to get in shape. It won't be a race or anything, so there's no need to train for speed, just endurance. We'd stop for food, and sleep. I'm planning on getting cars to follow us in front and behind for safety and for supply holding (food, drink, sleeping, bike pumps, clothes, ect.)
It sounds irrational and crazy and it seems like it doesn't connect to the topic "suicide prevention", but click the cut to see how the boys from waco see it.
i was thinking about it at an ACTS meeting, and its something i have to do. i need something to work for, and i need something to be alive for, not in terms of physically but emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I've been so bored and unhappy, becuase i havent had anything to work on. this gives me a purpose. I'm excited.
is anyone interested? either in biking with me or supporting?( the boys from wacoCollapse )
