Sausalito to San Rafael

April 18th, 2013

4-18-13Just a few miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge is Sausalito. It is a peaceful town on the bay with incredible views and incredible people. I rode this beautiful, narrow strip of land to the delight of so many people. Conversations were many, as The Kindness Bus was parked for all to see as I made myself as visible as I pedaled around.
One great connection was Michael MacNeill, a local resident, who caught sight and pulled over. “I knew this had to be something good, the moment I saw it,” he said. Michael is involved in giving back in very big ways. On the board of The Respect Institute, www.therespectinstitute.org he helps today’s youth learn self respect and self esteem, thereby helping to create a culture of kind, caring individuals who can give back these character building traits to this world. He is a leader with Futures Without Violence, www.futureswithoutviolence.org which works to prevent and end violence against women and children around the world. These two organizations are teaching the same tenets One Million Acts Of Kindness embraces.
Thank you for all the work you do Michael, and thank you for stopping and realizing, The Kindness Bus “must be something good.” What an inspiring conversation.
Thank you to Reverend Dan Christian of St. Luke Presbyterian Church of San Rafael, for letting me park overnight in his lot. What a view!
