Southern Polytechnic State University

February 24th, 2010

Bogart-and-the-worldThe Kindness Bus Tour got off to a late start this day. A big thanks to my cousin Bob and his wife Marti for showing me an evening of southern hospitality, complete with a home cooked meal. Every now and then, it is nice to get a break from the firmness of my plywood bed in the bus. We left early enough this morning, but by the time I got some of my catch-up work done, we would only have time for an afternoon visit to SPSU. I pulled onto campus and the first person I went to ask for directions to the student center was Anthony, he was on the phone with his girlfriend, Brooke, from The University of Georgia, she was one of the two thousand students we had talked to last week. Unbelievable‼ We headed into a very busy Joe Mack Wilson Student Center and had almost everyone interested in Bogart and the message of One Million Acts of Kindness. An official looking person headed my way; he introduced himself as Barry Birckhead, Dean of Students. He told me of an article which he had recently read on my mission. We were welcomed with open arms. Thank you to everyone on this friendly campus. Barry even agreed to forward my message to his students.

  At times during our travels, Bogart gives me a look, as if he is carrying the weight of the world on his back. I could not resist taking this picture of him today. In three days, on the twenty-seventh, Bogart will be one year old to me. He was a rescue dog birthday present for me last year.
