Perhaps sometimes I like to look at things from a different perspective. Last weekend, it was a great day at the Aurora Farmers’ Market & Artisan Fair. If you haven’t noticed I had my lens on the Lost Boyz Riding Club. Smoothly, almost gliding into the park, with a non-disturbing roar, they arrived for Kerry’s Place Appreciation Day on Saturday July 4th, 2015 at the Town Park.
True charity is the desire to be useful to others with no thought of recompense.” ~ Emanuel Swedenborg
The joy of riding and joy of giving, simultaneous action, to support those in need. That’s them. One might think that Lost Boyz is a motorcycle club. In fact it is not. It is a Riding Club, but indeed a motorcycle is required. If I am not mistaken through their ‘creative‘ fundraisers, Lost Boyz RC raise money for various organizations, including Kerry’s Place Autism Services. This was my second year to see them arrive at the Town Park in Aurora. The first year went unpublished, perhaps one day there will be an archive photo showcase.
Today, I am sure, that we all know what autism is. Children in school know. I am grateful that open kind of communication is enforced among children. That children are educated about autism in their early years. It helps both sides. We all know that we can’t cure the unknown.
I have met many amazing autistic children throughout my life. They are unique. They are not any different, they just need a different kind of attention. I must say we have come a long long way.
And to conclude, I enjoyed the performance of this young man. Inspirational. And here is a partial replay.
