lone ranger

"Determination,strength, independence - those were the qualities I worshipped in my favourite movie hero, the Lone Ranger. I went to the movies every Saturday, and sometimes I even snuck in through the fire escape when I dindn't have the money to buy a ticket. I felt just like the Lone Ranger the day I set off to ride my bike across the George Washington Bridge to New York City. Ten years old, I pedaled twenty miles down unfamiliar roads and busy streets, past neighbors and strangers, out into the unknown. Just like the Lone Ranger, I didn't need help from anyone. It took me all day, but I found the way and did it myself." - Edwin Aldrin
