Ride of silence

After reading through this, I'm not sure what to think about it. At its core I think it is a good cause, but I guess I don't feel the burn to participate for some reason. From the Ride of Silence web site:

Join cyclists worldwide in a silent slow-paced ride (max. 12 mph/20 kph) in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways.

Why does this site exist?

To HONOR those who have been injured or killed

To RAISE AWARENESS that we are here

To ask that we all SHARE THE ROAD
I guess I feel like I honor folks that have been hurt or died on the roads every time I ride. Otherwise, we'd all just quit riding, right?

What do you think?
