Friend, John Stratton who founded the Ashland Center for Non violence left this world for a place that knows no violence. It was a pleasure and an honor to have known him.
I will always miss the kindness of this wonderful man.

A covenant between God and man that peace shall prevail on earth. I feel after all these years that this is the perfect addition to the Kindness Bus.

Edna House

Thank you to everyone at the Edna House for the warm welcome at their event this morning. The weather was perfect for the 5K run and 1 mile walk by families who have been affected by addictions, bullying and suicide.
The Edna House for Women offers long-term, structured sober living and education to women seeking recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol. I heard so many success stories today, obviously this organization is doing some wonderful work for those in need of comfort.



Camp Cheerful

Monday, August 22nd, 2016


We had a very special visit to Camp Cheerful in Strongsville, Ohio. Bogart and I were able to connect with all the volunteers and residents on this campus today. We were even offered lunch and then an opportunity to speak to the entire group during their lunch hour.
Camp Cheerful is now one of my favorite places to visit. Thank you to everyone.

Kindness in College and Career

Saturday, August 20th, 2016


Let Kindness continue!
I met Brittany six years ago at the Ohio University campus in Athens, Ohio. She almost jumped out of her shoes when she realized that the guy on the Kindness Bicycle today was the guy with the bus and the little dog from years ago.
She told me that hearing about kindness back in college made such an impression on her. She still to this day has the original One Million Acts of Kindness sticker that I gave to her. Her kindness has carried over into her career. What a great message it was to me, to hear those words she spoke.

Stop That Bully!

Thursday, August 18th, 2016


Crystal, a preschool teacher told me she has seen her fair share of bullying over the years and the most important way of getting it to stop is getting an adult involved right when it starts. Some of the children in her charge are bullied as well. Bullying at any age is a very bad thing but when you are of preschool age it is certainly hard to comprehend.
