At my age, seventeen, driving is a priviledge, not a right. Many teens take advantage of the fact that they only need to prove they are capable and responsible in order to earn the approval of their parents to drive. Elder citizens have lost the ability to drive and have no choice but to lean on their neighbors, family members and friends to provide transportation so they can continue to fufill their lives. From the perspective of a child of a volunteer, Neighbor Ride has not only enhanced the lives of the seniors, but has also enhanced the lives of the volunteers who serve. This service enables the community, young and old, to connect and come together as neighbors should. I have seen my parents joy at being able to care for elders and return at least a small amount of their independence to them.
