Teaching Honor and Respect for Heroes

April 24th, 2012

4-24-12Marla Brose a photographer for The Albuquerque Journal found The Kindness Bicycle Tour interesting enough to spend a good deal of time this afternoon interviewing and photographing us. Hoping to get some great press for the Heroes I ride for, I contacted her newspaper and created a “buzz.” She photographed me for a story at my location and then as I made my way through traffic to Fire Station 21 and the Michael R. King and Richard W. Smith Jr. Memorial Substation, a Police facility named for 2 Heroes who gave their lives in the line of duty a handful of years ago. Marla and I talked about many of the reasons I am riding but primarily to raise awareness and help to create a culture of respect and honor for those who protect our liberties and freedom.
Steve, a local firefighter and his wife met with me for a short while, just prior to the interview. They were thrilled to learn The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes was visiting their town.
Spencer and son Jacob stopped by The Kindness Bus late today, Jacob told his dad that his 2nd grade teacher talked about the Kindness Bus Tour at his school. What a wonderful way for this message to reach others. Word continues to spread.
