Trail Of Tears, Motorcycle Ride, September 17, 2011
I was able to make the ride although feeling a little guilty not working on a Saturday. Below are a few photos of my final destination in Waterloo Alabama. After passing by the many vendors selling trinkets and T-shirts of the ride I just wanted to interject a short note here about the purpose of the ride...A remembrance of those forced from their homes paying an ultimate price. The Trail of tears is so named because of the forced removal of Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, Seminole and Chickasaw tribes of the South to Indian Territory in Oklahoma. The forced march took place from North Carolina, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi. A lesser known fact is that many non-native American's were displaced including African-Americans. All who were relocated endured, disease, exposure to the weather and starvation...many thousands died. Follow this link for more detailed historical information...Trail Of Tears.
Now here's a twist...Maureen on the right is a past client and current friend. I helped her family into a home this year. The twist: her husband took the kids to a soccer game and Maureen rode her bike in the Trail of Tears with me and another friend of hers.
