Fiseha's Testimony

One young man who attended the North Williams Community Forum on November 28, 2011, hoped he'd have the chance to tell everyone his story, and why safety improvements on North Williams Avenue are important to him.  Here's what he wrote, the way he wrote it!

My name is fiseha.  Tomarow I will be 9.  I live on morris st and go to Boise Eliot school.  I would like to ride my bike to school and it's very hard to go across williams st.  I would like a safer way to bike or walk to school.  I would like it to be safer to bike in my naber hood.  Sometime I cant go to a place or to school on my bike.  I have a one speed bike, but soon I will get a geer bike so I can go up hills like my mom and dad.  But my mom said that I'll get a geer bike in a loooooooong time.
