Virginia Tech

December 8th, 2011

12-8-11My daughter, Lizzie sent me a text about the shootings on the Virginia Tech campus today. It brought back the thoughts of that day, 4 1/2 years ago,  when 32 people lost their lives. It also brought back the strong feelings which caused me to start One Million Acts Of Kindness. A belief in that kindness always prevails. A belief in creating a mindset of respecting and caring for one another through kindness. Learning and adopting core values such as these, at an early age, will avert any future tragedies.
Today a police officer lost his life in this shooting. The lack of respect for police officers is something that seems to be growing in popularity. The tide needs to be reversed from this type of thinking.
In a little over a month, The Kindness Bicycle Tour to Raise Awareness for Wounded Warriors and Safety Forces Killed  in the Line of Duty, with the hopes of helping to change this mindset. I am hoping it happens in a hurry.
