Virginia Tech, Ten Years Later

Sunday, April 16th, 2017


Today is the 10th anniversary of the tragedy at Virginia Tech. It was because of that event that the One Million Acts of Kindness mission began.
With the original intent of traveling the country promoting Kindness for 10 years, it’s hard to believe that we have reached that length of time in such a short amount of time. I hope that makes sense to you.
This mission now has a ‘rest of my life’ timeframe. I hope I live well beyond 100 years of age.

The Arc believes in self-determination and self-advocacy.  People with intellectual and developmental disabilities, with appropriate resources and supports, can make decisions about their own lives and must be heard on issues that affect their well-being.
We will stop at many of the Arc facilities across the nation to lend support.

Needing a part to repair the Kindness Bus, Bogart and I are traveling by an improvised Kindness Car for the next few days. If you look closely you can see the Kindness Bike squeezed into the back half of the car. Bogart has an amazing way of adapting wonderfully.

A Great Future Planned

Logan had been talking with his mother Sherry a few days ago about how when he is older, he wants to travel the country doing nice things for people. He couldn’t believe it when he saw the Kindness Bus pull into the park where their family was having a picnic.
He wants to take a dog with him as well.
