Rounding Third, Heading for Home

September 14th, 2012

9-14-12My visit to the South Bronx on The Kindness Bicycle today, was nothing short of incredible. So many great visits and conversations. It dawned on me this afternoon, as I was passing Yankee Stadium, that I am getting near the finish of The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes. I am rounding third and heading for home.
Glenn, a Marine and now a Firefighter, and Kevin, with ladder 29 were instant fans the moment the door opened to their Firehouse.
40 Precinct Community Affairs Officer Espada and School Sergeant Garcia are doing all they can to help kids in their borough. They loved the idea of sharing the idea of One Million Acts Of Kindness with their community.
Bobby with Ladder 55 had loads of questions and wanted as many details as I could tell him.
Every Firehouse I visit, it seems as though I am offered breakfast or lunch, lucky for me I am riding so many miles.
