A Prince George boy is beaming after his bike was returned with an apologetic note two days after an anonymous thief took it for a drunken Canada Day joyride.

“Dear little boy or girl,

First and foremost, I am sorry for any grief I have caused in the last couple of days but I am now trying to return your bike to the proper home where it belongs.

You see, I stole your bike the other night purely out of selfish convenience and due to my state of inebriation, I cannot recall exactly which house it was in the vicinity of this neighborhood.

I think the lesson to be learned here is that you should NEVER leave your bike out in plain view where drunken fools like myself can easily snatch it for a quick (and surprisingly fun) ride home.

Anonymous Bike Thief”

Mother’s response:
“Dear anonymous bike thief,” she wrote. “Thank you for your attempt at making it right. My son has been miserable since he discovered his bike missing. Thanks! A soon to be happy boy’s mama.”

I am not alone


Right now,
there are people all over the world
who are just like you.

They’re lonely.
They’re missing somebody.
They’re in love with someone
they probably shouldn’t be in love with.

They have secrets you wouldn’t believe.
They wish and they dream and they hope,
and they look out the window whenever they’re
in the car or on a bus or a train and they watch people
on the streets and wonder what they’ve been through.
They wonder if there are people out there like them.

They’re like you,
and you could tell them everything
and they would understand.

And right now,
they’re sitting here reading these words,
and I’m writing this for you
so you don’t feel alone anymore.
