My Hometown

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

8-25-10My Hometown, Cleveland Ohio, is in my sights for a campaign for kindness. Cleveland, “The City of Kindness,” makes much sense to me as a slogan for this city. Having this city be in transition for a few decades  has not been good for its image; Cleveland seems to have lost its identity. Over the past 14 months I have visited more than 80 cities and towns. One thing has become clear about Cleveland, its image could use some improvement. It’s hard having to defend Cleveland most places I visit, since most people don’t realize what a great place it really is.  I lived in Northeast Ohio for 54 years before I left on The Kindness Bus Tour.  Now that I am back for 3 weeks, I am going to do everything in my power to improve its image.
Cleveland has some of the most caring, philanthropic and considerate residents in the world. They are its greatest asset. I believe the time has come to promote Cleveland as such.
