An 8 year ride for kids

Put an end to Bullying & Adolescent Suicide

In year 3 of this mission, I introduced a bicycle ride to my travels to raise
awareness about issues kids are having to deal with at far too young an age.
Bullying and Adolescent Suicide are two of these challenging burdens most kids
will unfairly have to overcome throughout the remainder of their lives. At rides
end we will have ridden enough miles to traveled the perimeter of the earth, twice.
My mission on this ride has but one focus: To save kids lives.

Riding through the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego this morning afforded me the time to talk with several homeless people and people who volunteer to help feed the local community. Marguerite works for an organization that lends a hand to a “smattering of groups” throughout the downtown area of San Diego.

Superior Court judge and dear friend John Kralik invited me to his courtroom today in Los Angeles. Several years ago John wrote a book called “A Simple Act of Gratitude” He wrote 365 thank you notes in a years time and it turned his entire life around. Has written 1,200  notes in total since he decided to start thanking people for their kind actions toward him. John is one of my favorite people.
