The Kindness Bus has seen so many weather events during the thirty months it has been part of the One Million Acts 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.
