In a few days . . . June 5, 2015 – Christian and Jewish Motorcyclists from Canada and the United States of America will meet yet again as we do every year, to make a SOLEMN PLEDGE of NEVER AGAIN to a Second Holocaust.
BUT THIS YEAR . . . will make an additional Pledge to Stand on Guard in defense of our North American FREEDOMS, which we see being eroded on a daily basis by governments, bureaucrats and the judiciary.
IT SEEMS TO US – CONSERVATIVES ALL . . . that the people we elect and appoint to protect our FREEDOMS, have in many cases become the source of the erosion of those FREEDOMS . . . AND THIS SHOULD NOT STAND.
We will begin the Pledge Ride in Kingston Ontario Canada, on Friday evening (June 5th), where the Jewish Sabbath will be celebrated with Hebrew Prayers over Sabbath Candles, Sabbath Wine, and the Sabbath Bread (Challah), to be shared by all the Pledge Riders . . . culminating with a Christian Prayer for our countries’ FREEDOMS and safety of our RIDERS, delivered by M-25 Leader – Pastor Gary Burd from Amarillo Texas.
From the Sabbath Ceremony, we will join together for a Banquet to celebrate the beginning of the RIDE, our Jewish/Christian Camaraderie, and the ROAD that lies ahead of us.
ON SATURDAY – we will rally . . . with the Heroes Highway Ride at Old Fort Henry, from where we will head for CFB (Canadian Forces Base) Trenton, located halfway between Kingston and Toronto, where we will pay our respects to Canada’s Fallen Heroes of the Afghanistan War, by following the route taken (Highway of Heroes) when our FALLEN Heroes are brought to Toronto for their final journey home.
ON SUNDAY – The Pledge Ride will head from Kingston to Ottawa, Canada’s Capital, where we will meet with the National Memorial Riders, and convoy with them to Canada’s National Military Cemetery, where several Pledge Riders will be honored with the invitation to Lay Wreaths on behalf of our fallen troops, with THREE American Veterans (Pledge Riders), who will lay wreaths on behalf of all Americans who have served in the defense of FREEDOM.
The end of the Pledge Ride Portion of this Memorial, will include a Prayer by M-25 Pastor Gary Burd, giving thanks for our FREEDOMS to the men and women who had made our FREEDOMS possible.
From the National Memorial Ride, we will head for a Mountain Resort in the Province of Quebec (Auberge Des Gallant), where we will all enjoy a second banquet and spend the night.
ON MONDAY – We will ride for Montreal, where we will explore the City (Beaver Lake (atop Mount Royal), the Old Port, Old Montreal) and at around 5:00 o’clock, we will visit the Montreal Holocaust Museum, where we will take our PLEDGE OF NEVER AGAIN . . . delivered by Holocaust Child Survivor and Pledge Rider – Andy Reti.
At the expiration of the PLEDGE, all the RIDERS will mount-up and head to a local Famous Montreal Smoked Meat Restaurant (Dunn’s), for a TOTALLY UNIQUE smoked meat extravaganza.
AND WITH THAT . . . The annual Pledge Ride will be finished until next year.
NEVER AGAIN means a great deal to all of us. And standing up for our FREEDOMS is the best way to guarantee NEVER AGAIN.
And to those who chipped in to help fund this year’s Pledge Ride – THANK YOU.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
