Indiana University

November 8th, 2009

It was parents’ weekend here and a beautiful sunny day, about 75 degrees.  I found an empty campus, or so I thought at the time.  I drove to the football stadium which was also empty.  Seeing a chance to do something fun, Bogart and I walked out onto the field.  A woman who worked there took my picture with Bogart at “The Rock” at the end of the field. 

I saw a campus policeman, Officer Delay, who said if I wanted to talk to the students I should go to the corner.  It turned out to be a great spot and I was there for 4-5 hours and met many people from all over.  My thanks to Officer Delay. I talked to Amy Mason and her daughter Grace.  Amy teaches kindergarten where her class of 60 students is having a Kindness day soon.  I gave her about 80 stickers to pass out and keep spreading the word.  It’s always so nice to see so many families express interest in the Kindness Project.  I also met two young families from Chicago who were thrilled about the message of One Million Acts Of Kindness. 

Alex Benson, a reporter for the school paper came out and interviewed me for about 45 minutes.  The article should be in the paper this week.  This turned out to be a very good day.

Indiana University was a great campus. Bogart and I enjoyed our visit, especially getting on the football field.I assure you that nothing happened similar to my blog entry on October 3rd at the Otterbein campus. Normally on a campus of this size I would stay for three days. However, because of my timeline of getting back to Cleveland, for my presentation to kids about this great goal of One Million Acts Of Kindness that they can achieve in their lives, time would only allow me to stay for one day.  I apologize to the students of Indiana University.
