One Hot Bus!

August 3rd, 2011

8-3-11 AThe Kindness Bus has seen so many weather events during the thirty months it has been part of the One Million 8-3-11 BActs Of Kindness mission. It has seen blinding rain storms, icy roadways, it has been surrounded by a 3 foot snow drift, and now, a record setting heat wave which seems to have no end. So many people ask me how I am able to live on The Kindness Bus when it is so hot without the comforts of air conditioning. It really doesn’t seem to bother me. I have a fan which I position a couple of feet away from my bed at night. To me as well, some of the things people have to put up with on a daily basis for years, makes me realize that a little bit of sacrifice for a few weeks in the summer is but a small price to pay if I can raise awareness about Domestic Violence and Childhood Sexual Abuse. The photo today is of the thermometer which I keep on the bus. The photo was taken in the late afternoon. The other photo hangs on the ceiling above my bed, it is of a young boy in Darfur. I’m sure it was at least as hot for him, and I’m also sure it was the least of his worries.
