I’m a little late acknowledging the accomplishment of five young people I met in Apple Valley last summer — the crew of Bus 52, who set out to document the ways people are giving back to their communities and doing good things.
They had planned to take a year and hit all 48 lower states in the U.S.
Last Friday, they concluded their mission. That’s one year of living together in confined spaces. Having recently graduated from college, it’s off to what some people think is real life.
Disclaimer: I donated to the Bus 52 project. And they gave me a T-shirt.
