    It Is devastating and I'm very unfortunate that the five cyclists never finished living their full life. They had their whole lives ahead of them, now I wish nothing but my deepest condolences goes to their families, friends and the people who knew them. it makes me think that I should contribute more to other people and help others. I think leaving a legacy behind is far more important than living my life as an everyday regular joe. thank you for this story it truly has inspired me.

    I think that this was a very interesting article. To start off I think it is a great thing that they come together to remember the lives of the ones who died. and the fact that part of it was tribute to those who helped them as well was also interesting. and just the things they were able to accomplish like the granite plague. overall I liked this article became of the work and the determination they had for the remembrance of there friends.

    Starting off with a very cultured background, the Polish seem to pay much importance to the All Saints Day and just like any immigrant when you are not able to make it back to our once home we celebrate in spirit many miles away. Two very important people are mentioned in the article, Margaret Mead and The Dalai Lama, in which both quotes are very significant. Margaret Mead quote has a lot of meaning in a few short words, changing the world does not require a lot of people who care those few people are the ones who do make a change and contribute so much to society. The Dalai Lama taking action and it is not enough to just care you must show it. Both wise contributors of society have on thing in common from the quotes discussed, they both move in the direction of making a difference, caring and doing something about it.

    This post was powerful. Along with the tragedy of those 5 cyclists losing their lives, I was most affected by the contribution they're lives and deaths inspired in others. The whole story caused me to stop and think about what contributions I am making to society, and whether or not those which I have made have been successful. At the end of the day, the future is never certain.

    Do you believe that talk radio holds true to the ideals of Habermas's public sphere or does another medium live up to his ideals more fully?
