10-23-12One thing is for certain, this town loves One Million Acts Of Kindness!!
The Kindness Bus rolled into the center of the downtown area of Princeton to a flurry of interest. Three locals came over to talk with me within the first 10 minutes of my arrival. Chris a traffic officer who previously was a Princeton Police Officer, pulled up in his vehicle during one of the conversations and announced that there was no need to fill the parking meter all day. What a huge act of kindness!
Fanny, the Director of Administration at the Lewis Center for the Arts was thrilled to see The Kindness Bus parked a stone’s throw away from her office. She was so generous, donating a care package and creating a new colorful hand out sheet for the Ring Our Country with Kindness ride. What a huge help this is while on the road.
Philip Sean Curran a reporter for the Princeton Packet newspaper interviewed me for this Friday’s edition of his paper. I’m hoping it is front page, above the fold.
Francis, another local, showed his generosity with his words and donation.
Tony, a Navy veteran, made two donations during the day. Thank you to everyone.
If I could turn back the hands of time to when I was 5 years old, I would study as hard as I possibly could and try to become a student at Princeton University. This campus is the “gold standard” when it comes to great looks in an even better setting. Every turn of The Kindness Bicycle revealed a beautiful view all day long. You can even get a great education here as well!
My interactions with students, mirrored the response I received from the residents of this town, genuine graciousness.
Everyone I talked with had an interest in the issues of Bullying and Adolescent Suicide. The consensus is that something needs to be done. This ride will make a difference!
