Newtown Bee

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015


Thank you to Eliza Hallabeck for interviewing me for an upcoming issue in the Newtown Bee. She will meet with me at the new location of Ben’s Bells. They recently moved from Newtown to Bethel, Connecticut.
I will visit the Sandy Hook/Newtown/Bethel, CT area for four days this weekend.

Western Reserve Academy

Thursday, August 13th, 2015


Two students from Western Reserve Academy approached me today in Hudson, Ohio. They were so interested in my mission and we had a very nice conversation about my travels. I know these two young men are going to do some very good things in their lifetime.
One of them operated the camera, so he isn’t in the photo.

Bikers Against Child Abuse

Monday, August 10th, 2015


Every day, without fail, I come across individuals who are doing great things for those in need of comfort. One of the individuals I came across recently was Ralph, former president of Bikers Against Child Abuse in Cleveland. This great organization has spread across the country and the various chapters are doing amazing work and protecting children. Ralph has proposed that I talk to their organization in the near future.
Thank you, Bikers Against Child Abuse!

Policing the Community

Saturday, August 8th, 2015


Two times in as many weeks I have crossed paths with Cleveland Police Officer Anthony Harper.  He is the liaison between the department and the community. He also works with kids in the Explorers program. The diligence in his work ethic has helped many kids to realize the importance of having a safe community. He is the perfect man for the job.
