Have an Attitude of Gratitude

July 16th, 2013
7-16-13In the spring of 2010, I met one of the most caring individuals this world has ever known, Dr George Barkett and his wife, the love of his life, Sue. Sadly, George just lost his long battle with cancer. He has been and is now an angel for The Kindness Bus Tour and will be with us every moment of our travels. After meeting him three wonderful years ago, I asked him what message he would like written on The Kindness Bus, he responded, “Have an attitude of gratitude.” What a wonderful lesson for all of us, to be grateful for everything in our lives. Thank you for that gift George.
Below is the first of a few blogs I have written over the past three years about this peace loving man:

Late last week I learned of Dr. George Barkett and his passion for trying to spread peace in the world with songs for peace, today, I had the privilege to meet him. This man’s entire life is about doing for others; not only in his local region, but all across the world. He is a role model for all of us. Our meeting was about helping to further each other’s mission. George’s website,songsforpeace.net is worth a visit, to see how you can change the world through song.
George and his wife Sue, have opened their home to me, during my stay in Vero Beach. They are introducing me to members of the community, to help network the cause of One Million Acts Of Kindness to others. George has invited me to speak to the Rotary while I am in town and he is helping me with a visit to a local school. I wish everyone had the same core values as George.
