“This brings us back to the “Chick Magnet”, the wheels that will propel Ryan and Ken into the days ahead. A method to keep treatment appointments and one day just to be out on the road, father and son sharing some time together, watching a once familiar world pass through the windshield. A world that has changed drastically for Ken and Ryan over the last two years, but a world that is also full of hope, love and support. Not only from Ken, but also from the hundreds of people who keep in touch with the family, helping as they can to make a difficult situation the best possible.” [Ryan’s Rally “Chick Magnet” more than a classic ride; symbol of sacrifice, love, Atlanta Collector Cars Examiner].
Let me explain the above excerpt by beginning… well… at the beginning. This email hit my inbox the other day…
I hope you don’t mind, but I have entered an article about Ryan on my web page at Examiner.com. My page is about one of my hobbies, collector cars, but an opportunity to possibly help you and Ryan presented itself and I didn’t want to let it pass by. The folks at Examiner.com are running a writing competition under the topic “America Inspired” with one of the sub-headings being “Sacrifice”. Ken, I couldn’t think of a better example than what you do for Ryan 24/7.
So I pulled some photos off the blog site, duly credited to you, as well as a YouTube video, also credited to you, and wrote an article about the Chick Magnet, you and Ryan. One of the rules of the competition is that your article must relate to your topic, and the Chick Magnet afforded me the tie-in.
If my article is selected for the finals for January 9th, there will be public voting on the best articles. The grand prize, given to the subject of the article, is $50,000. I only hope that I have done a good enough job so that you win the prize. There are other cash prizes available, maybe we can get lucky and win something.
Anyway, I just wanted to make you aware of the article. A link is provided below, might be good to share on the blog. Maybe if the article gets enough clicks we can get into the finals.
I know this time of the year is very tough for all of you, but I want to wish the whole Diviney family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
