Heroes often exist within our very midst,
watching out for our wellbeing without us ever knowing it.
David Virgoe is such a hero.
On Monday, June 18, 2007, tragic circumstances
resulting from a collision with an alleged speeding car on Highway
400 south of Highway 89 in Ontario, Canada claimed David's life
- a professional truck driver for 26 years. Police and witnesses
at the scene have acknowledged David's heroic actions in the final
moments of his life.
David had initiated difficult and deliberate avoidance
maneuvers that, without doubt, prevented other deaths and injuries
from occurring that day.
To his family and friends, David's virtues were
well known - a big rig driver for more than a quarter century, David
lived his life doing what he loved doing best: covering literally
millions of miles of highway professionally, conscientiously and
without a single accident.
With a commitment to tomorrow, let us honour the
memory of David Virgoe by conducting ourselves on the world's roadways
as he had done - safely, professionally, and with utmost consideration
for the wellbeing of those who share life's journey with us.
