LEISA EINING LISA I-ING WAS SHOCKED WHEN SHE OPENED
HER GARAGE THIS MORNING AND HER SON'S TRIKE WAS NO
WHERE IN SIGHT!
BUT TONIGHT, SHE IS USING HER FRUSTRATIONS TO TRY
TO GET THE UNIQUE BIKE, BACK IN HER SON'S POSSESSION.
it's just so irritating that it is just gone?
A MOTHER IS SCRATCHING HER HEAD TONIGHT, WONDERING
WHY? AND HOW?
i open it up and kind look and go, where is it?
A SPECIAL TRICYCLE -- GONE.
LEISA EINING'S 17-YEAR-OLD SON MANNY IS DISABLED AND,
USES THIS TRIKE AS A WAY TO EXERCISE.
it was made for disabled people because it has straps
on the pedals and straps that go around his waist
[SHOW PIC WITH TRIKE]
FOR 6 YEARS, MANNY HAS RIDDEN THE BIKE AROUND THIS
COMPLEX, WITH A BIG SMILE ON HIS FACE.
having the bike it makes him put his legs together
more and strengthens him that way
LEISA SAYS SOMETIME BETWEEN YESTERDAY MORNING AND
EARLY TODAY, THE BIKE WAS STOLEN RIGHT FROM HER LOCKED
i was putting flyers all around the apartment complex
right away, going why did you take a disabled boy's
HER FEELINGS BOLD ON THE FLYER.
SHAME, SHAME, SHAME ON THE PERSON WHO DID THIS!
we are going to have to tell him tonight if we don't
YEARS AGO, THE TRIKE WAS GIVEN TO MANNY AS A GIFT
FROM THE ROTARY CLUB.
i don't have the money to do it, maybe over a period
BUT IN THE MEANTIME, LEISA IS USING A NO-COST METHOD,
AND APPEALING TO WHOEVER TOOK THE BIKE!
i would just be happy to have it back, if they want
to just drop it off that's fine
THE TRICYCLE IS RED WITH BLACK TRIM AND HAS A LARGE
BASKET ON THE BACK.
