Heroes All Around Us

July 24th, 2012

photo.JPG24thArmy Sergeant Jim Josten was slowly making his way through the streets of Brooklyn Heights when he saw The Kindness Bicycle. Jim did 2 tours of duty in Vietnam. He says he’s a little slower now but he gets there a little later than sooner. He and I talked for some time as people walked by in his neighborhood. He is a true American Hero.
Today was a very long day in the sun as I made my way to many Firehouses and Police Precincts. I also visited the Veterans Hospital where I talked with several Veterans who work or are being treated at this facility. I had the fortune of meeting with the Public Affairs Officer who is going to spread word of The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes throughout the campus. Making my way out of the maze of corridors I had a conversation with a small group of Marines.
There are Heroes all around us, you just have to want to see them.
