When I was young people treated skateboarding like a crime and skateboarders like juvenile punks looking to get into trouble. I love that the times have changed and love that these guys are awesome!
This stems from a story in June. Links below to the story and the letter to the 4 skateboards from the girl.
To the 4 Heroes on Skateboards,Arnaud Nimenya, Carsyn Wright, James Hielema and Starlyn Rivas-Perez, I don’t know you, but thank you.When you saw a well-dressed man carrying a drunk young lady through a parking garage in Calgary, thank you for being concerned.When you heard her start screaming and yelling, thank you for stopping to ask why.When he told you that he was trying to call her dad to pick her up, thank you for being respectful in giving a stranger the benefit of the doubt but remaining suspicious anyway.“You don’t want to really think of the worst in somebody like that,” you said. “You don’t want the situation to be real, so you just brush it off and hope for the best.”But thank you for doing the exact opposite when your gut intuition told you something was dead wrong.
