On her bicycle, an elderly person was able to escape the tsunami in Japan.
I find it impossible to listen to stories like this without immediately wondering how people in the United States have grown to be so soft. During most of the year, people in Connecticut find excuses for not biking. "It's too rainy. It's too cold. It's snowing. It's dark and someone might stab me. The humidity might make me sweat."
Do you think this woman ever thought for a second, "Oh, I can't get on my bike. I'm too old and it's too wet outside"?
