    Just yesterday my husband and I were driving down a fairly busy road when I noticed a Ghost Bike that hadn't been there the week before. I slowed the car and drove by feeling a little dismayed at seeing it. My husband hadn't heard about the Ghost Bikes in NYC, so I told him what I knew of the story. We both agreed that it was an incredibly powerful way to remember the rider and to draw attention to a horrible event in a specific location. For me, knowing what the bike was and seeing one for the very first time in person rather than on the web, left me with such a visceral reaction. I'd like to think that no one would co-opt that image and reaction as part of a marketing tool on purpose.

    We live in Tampa Florida.
