They jumped on their bikes, determined to help find the missing woman. Surprisingly, they succeeded.
There are two things that you can count on in life. First, the kids will ride bicycles. Second, older people will lose their way. What happens, though, when the two become one?
Well, that’s exactly what happened in one story that has gone viral. A video about this has been watched more than 1.6 million times since it was put on social media. People all over the world can’t believe how the story turned out.
According to many experts on the elderly, it’s common for older men and women to get lost. It has mostly to do with unstable activity in one part of the brain. This makes them feel lost and confused, making it hard for them to find their way even in places they know well.
A group of young kids decided to go bike riding, just like they had done hundreds of times before. It was just a normal day like any other. They lived in Sacramento, California, where the weather was nice, so this was a great way to have fun.
A policeman approached the children as they were riding their bikes through the streets. He told them that a woman from the area who was 97 years old had gone missing. So, he asked if they would keep an eye out for anything strange.
Kids are always ready to try something new. Logan, Hope, Kash, and McKenna made the decision to explore at that point. They were hopeful, but they didn’t really think much would happen. But the group came up with a plan after telling the officer they would help.
The children then decided it would be better to ride their bikes up and down the streets. But that wasn’t all they did. They rode through parks, up hills, and anywhere else they could think of to try to find the missing woman.
This just shows that you should never bet against a kid who wants to do well. And they were sure of themselves. You can see for yourself how beautiful and moving this story is by clicking on the video below.
