Navy SEAL Team 6

April 27th, 2012

One of the highest honors took place while I was with The Kindness Bicycle today. A mother of a Navy SEAL came by to thank me for riding for Wounded Warriors. Members of Navy SEAL Team 6 were the elite forces who terminated Bin Laden. A few months later, some of the Navy SEAL Team 6 were among the 22 Navy SEALs who lost their lives when their Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan. Her son was one of the Navy SEALs who perished.
It took some alone time in The Kindness Bus for me to gather my thoughts after our visit. I was so very honored that I was being thanked by a mother who lost her son less than a year ago. I hope seeing The Kindness Bicycle and what it stands for, offers this proud woman some comfort in her life. Thank you to all families of those who protect our liberties and freedom.
While taking a break at a coffee shop I met Brigadier General Gilbert Baca (ret.) The General was an Army Ranger who had seen The Kindness Bus yesterday. Today he saw The Kindness Bicycle outside and came over to tell me how much it meant to him to see someone riding for Wounded Warriors.  I am honored a General would take the time to thank me.
This afternoon, I met Brian Chavez the Unit Director and Elaine the Program Administrator at the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Fe. I stopped by this center to let them know about The Kindness Certificates. It is my hope that  they adopt them at their five centers in Santa Fe.
Some exciting news happened late today, I will talk about it in tomorrow’s article.
