So, if anyone can help me out, I am looking for a veteran from WWII, Korean War, or the Vietnam war to interview for a school project that is coming up this quarter. We would interview the veteran, and make a video that gets entered into the Library of Congress. We also have a day where we invite all the veterans to come view the videos with us and hear our presentations on what we learned. I go to a project based, technology based school in the Yolo County area (near Sacramento) and the interview has to be done in person.
I was on the Dumbarton Bridge today going to SF, when a little black and brown dog came out of nowhere dodging in and out of the 3 lanes on my side of the bridge. Of course traffic on our side of the freeway was pretty much stopped because of this, so I jumped out of the car (my mom was driving) and tried to catch this dog, the poor thing was so terrified it jumped over the center-divide and into the oncoming traffic. I'm not sure how, but everyone on the other side was able to stop with no trouble to avoid the little dog. I jumped over the divide as well. and tried my best to chase him onto the bike path on the side. By this point everyone in the 3 lanes of traffic on this side was stopped and some people were trying to help. Two nice bikers kept as close to the dog as they could, while trying to keep him out of the road when we finally got him off. When the first officer arrived I told him what was happening and hopped in w/ him. We ended up chasing the dog for about 10 mins while more officers came and blocked the traffic with their cars while they tried to catch him. You know how we finally got him...someone opened their car door to see if they could help...and he jumped in. I think he was laughing the whole time going "hahaha look I can make them, stop-go-run-dive HAHAHA". Anyway it was fun...until I realized that my mom was somewhere on the other side of the freeway in the traffic which was now moving at a good pace. Luckily the officer that I had first talked to called her and drove me to her!
