Kimberly Micheal shared this story as to why she was at the event. “When I was asked by Gale Allen to work the registration table for the Buffalo Soldier’s Poker Run, I was happy to do so. Last year, I was out for a ride on my Harley Davidson when I ran out of gas… A single female rider alone on Santiago Canyon Rd. In the 40 minutes that I was stranded, I must have been passed by at least twenty bikes riders, numerous motorists, and even a police cruiser! Remember the days when people used to actually stop to help? Discouraged, I was about to (reluctantly) leave my bike and walk for gas when a group of motorcyclists came to my aide. Not only did they get me gas for my bike but they refused to let me give them any money… they wouldn’t even let me pay the cost of the gallon of gas! They merely said, pay it forward… and if anyone asks tell them The Buffalo Soldiers were the ones who helped you.” I am grateful that they did!” What a wonderful testimony to share in these times.

Remember to watch out for our children and seniors.

Be Blessed!
