    Did anyone ever see this? It's about a man who travels the world and relies on the kindness of strangers for everything...shelter, gas, food, etc.

    He meets so many amazing and generous people. Some who have nothing themselves, yet share what little they have. It's also about how he rewards some of the neediest people, he had built a poor single mom a house, a homeless man a training program, just whatever thing they really needed to transform their own lives.

    Reminds me of the Peace Pilgrim. She was an older woman when she began walking across America relying on the kindness of strangers and sharing her vision of love and peace. I read her book, it was inspiring and pretty remarkable too. These are the kinds of stories that bring our humanity to the fore and remind us that we are all connected.

    Two of her quotes that I like are:

    "If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought."


    "When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others."
