When I was in San Francisco, right outside a Starbucks, I saw a school bus covered in drawings. What called my attention is that all the drawings were messages of love and respect. It was so incredible that I took several minutes to read all the messages, some of them were: Spread kindness to everyone every chance, Peace is for everyone, You are the change this world needs, Help everyone you can today… too inspiring, too moving. It was a bus of positivism, love, good intentions.
My family and I were staring at the bus, when suddenly Bob came along, a father of three children, divorcee, who after September 11th and of the slaughter at Virginia Tech, decided to sell everything, buy a bus and travel around United States of America over 10 years, simply to give love. As simple as that.
“I was tired of all the injustice of the world, of seeing children going through violent situations, I was sick of bullying, so I decided to begin this project and drive around America with love messages for children. I was lost for words, with tears in my eyes, trying to understand how a man with such a big heart decided to dedicate his life to giving love, advising children at schools, and raising their self-esteem, preventing them from falling into violence. Without receiving anything in exchange other than his own satisfaction.”
Bob travels with only one companion, his dog Bogart. Together they drive along the school campus to radiate love. In fact, the name of the project is “One million acts of kindness” and the objective is to inspire people to do the same thing, as an individual goal: a million acts of kindness during our lives. What do you say? Are you up for it?
