We were just going for a ride

A forbidden Sunday motorcycle ride leads to the need for critical decisionmaking.

MY NEW FRIEND Tyler and I decided that we wanted to go out on a motorcycle ride. He called some other guys, and we headed out. Our original idea was to take a ride up through Millcreek Canyon. As we started toward the canyon, we took a wrong turn and decided to see where the road would lead. We knew that since we were in an area where there was an overview of Salt Lake City, if the road continued, the view could only get better.

Throughout the entire ride, I was thinking about the instructions of my parents: No more bullet-bike rides. They felt that I was not safe on a bullet-bike. As I thought about their fear and their instructions, I decided to pray. I turned to God and affirmed that my safety could not be altered by my choice of transportation, or even as a result of my disobedience.

We prayed in the emergency room
