Sonoma Valley is beautiful wine country. Riding here is breathtaking to say the very least. Meeting and talking with so many locals and tourists is such a gift. Sometimes I don’t even have to talk with people and the message has an impact. A local mom, Teresa and her daughter walked by The Kindness Bus while I was out riding. I heard from her after the fact, that both of them seeing the Bullying/Adolescent Suicide sign on the windshield created dialogue about issues she wanted to discuss with her daughter for quite some time. It helped the two of them reconnect.
The 3rd annual One Million Acts Of Kindness Day is one week from today. See how many acts of kindness you can do in a day. Started 3 years ago in Whitney Point, New York, the date for this annual event is always April 27th.
Thank you to Reverend Nancy Taylor and Denise Wilbanks of The First Congregational Church of Sonoma for extending such gracious hospitality during my stay in this beautiful town.
