These dudes are fucking legit. They don’t just show up one day in court, either, they actually make friends with the kids and let them know they have a support system and that there are people in the world who care about them and will always have their back. And less important, but also cool, is that the few times a couple of them have come into my cafe, they’ve been super friendly and polite and when I told one of the guys that I noticed his Bikers Against Child Abuse patch and wanted him to know how awesome I thought he was because of it, he got kind of shy and blushed and said, “The kids are the awesome ones, we just let them know they’re allowed to be brave.”
Needs to be reblogged.
Hey, bikers are AWESOME.
These guys are amazing people.
“BACA Mission Statement
Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. We exist as a body of Bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. We stand ready to lend support to our wounded friends by involving them with an established, united organization. We work in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children. We desire to send a clear message to all involved with the abused child that this child is part of our organization, and that we are prepared to lend our physical and emotional support to them by affiliation, and our physical presence. We stand at the ready to shield these children from further abuse. We do not condone the use of violence or physical force in any manner, however, if circumstances arise such that we are the only obstacle preventing a child from further abuse, we stand ready to be that obstacle.”
My heroine, my soul mate, my darling grandmother.
She is a Holocaust survivor, originally from Romania. She endured incredible hardships, including nearly being sold to Russian soldiers as a sex slave, and watching her father get beaten to death. After the war, she and her surviving family members went to Israel, where she met my grandfather. He survived Bergen Belsen. Most of his family perished in other camps. One of his brothers left Poland, however, for pre-state Israel in the 1920s, where he became a pioneer of the kibbutz movement. My grandfather joined his kibbutznik brother before falling in love with my grandmother while passing by her house in Haifa. She was hanging up clean laundry on a clothesline. He ran to her neighbour and asked, ‘Who’s that girl? I’m going to marry her.’ And he did.
<3 <3 <3 !!!
For those wondering how she escaped becoming a sex slave:
A Gentile neighbour hid her and her little sister in his barn overnight. When the soldiers showed up at the family home to take them, my great-grandmother paid them off with a purse of gold pieces that the same neighbour had gifted to further ensure my grandmother’s safety.She was 12 years old. My great-aunt was only 7.
