Default Re: The Band of Brothers 393

Read this the other day and it brought to mind something that was told to me by one of the members here. We were discussing the GMBIII and how powerful it was. The subject of MrsTwister and myself and the friendship, or rather, bond we share was brought up. This person told me the reason we're so close is because we "traded hearts". And he was right. I was talking to Robbie about this today...and as many of you know, we call each other, Sister Sledge. It came from something my sisters and I used to call each other. Not only that, you've seen on here many times how we refer to each other as family, which brought to mind a song, by the band, Sister Sledge - We are family. How funny is that? Anyway, I wanted to share the words with you guys...as they are so fitting. Sisters, brothers...we're family.

Lyrics We Are Family - Sister Sledge


CHORUS
We are family
I've got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up everybody and sing!
We are family
I've got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up everybody and sing!

Everyone can see we're together
as we walk on by.
And we fly just like birds of a feather
and we'll tell no lie.
All of the people around us they say
can they be that close.
Just let me state for the record
we're giving lovin a family dose

CHORUS
We are family
I've got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up everybody and sing!
We are family
I've got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up everybody and sing!


Living life is fun and we've just begun to get our share
of this world's delights
High hopes we had for the future
and our goals in sight
No we don't get depressed here's what we call our golden rules
have faith in you and the things you do
you won't go wrong oh no
this is our family view

Default Reading Machoman393 statement - "Band of Brothers 393"

Macho,
I read your story once again and I remember it as if it was yesterday. I still cannot read it without crying. I will never forget receiving the Trophy you send us. Remember, you drew the number 393 on the number plate of the trophy! I cried as I read your letter - I still have it today. In fact, I took the liberty of typing it below to give you all a 'glimpse' at the heart of Machoman393. Mark, I hope you do not mind me doing this. Perhaps it will touch others as it touched my family.

"" Michael & Mrs. Berg & Shannon,
Sunday, October 13, 2002

Just to let you know, about a week or two ago I decided to dedicate my next race in honor of your son & brother Garrett. I'm not an MX'er but I do Harescrambles. You might not know what a Harescramble is, it is a race that last for 2 hours that is nothing but woods that is set up on a closed course that is about 6 miles long. The man who does the most laps in 2 hours wins. It will wear you out (I'm 39 yrs old and holding).

During this season I've not did any better than 4th. I decided to give it my all, in honor of your family. Well guess what! With the will of knowing I was not riding for myself I placed second. I give you this trophy to let you know I didn't do it alone. This was the first race that I had my Motoman 393 stickers on my bike! So I didn't actually race alone. Everytime I started to fade I would remember that this was for Garrett. I would say to myself Motoman!!! And I would pick up my speed.

Please accept this trophy and remember that your son & brother still makes a difference in others lives and think of the great times you had.

Sincerely,

Mark Alan Golleher ""


Imagine receiving this trophy without ever having spoken to the man whom sent it. Each time I called his home - I got the answering machine and I left a message. I finally got to speak with Mark after three calls. I was then and I am still amazed at how people could be so deeply impacted at the 'hearts' AND yet had never met.

From the "darkest days" imaginable a 'special grouping of men' began to form before any of us had met face to face. I believe it is fair to say that none of us realized what was happening. The voices began to form "the bond" - looking into each others eyes, the tears followed by a hand shake that turned into a hug - formed an unbreakable bonding of the hearts, now known as the "Band of Brothers 393!" Thanks for sharing Mark.

Mike as I read through this post again it brought back many of memories and tears. I somewhat understand why I'm drawn to you and your family. I truely have a love in my heart for your family. Its like Ive known them my whole life. What we have shared is something special between the Band of Brothers. Men who have cried then and cry now, not turning away from our brothers tears but looking back with hurt of our own for them. Garrett to me is what I call unconditional love. Its pure. Often a young man or parent never knows the love I see in your........in our family. Yes Mike I consider you family. I have told you things no one else will ever know, as only brothers can truely share. I still remember watching the 1st film Zoot made. I had never seen it before and watched it with Abbie(means God within)my middle daughter. It broke my heart as her little eyes swelled with tears and she said is that Garretts daddy? She, a little girl knew what I felt as we both cried watching the movie. I often thought our group could not grow. I didn't think others could grasp what we felt that 1st year.Yes we share a special bond. But it grows as others see the strenght of brotherly love. So I do think the band of brothers (and sisters) grow.
Thank you for the kind words, but I thank you for teaching only as you Mike Berg can, on how to be a better Dad.
