I

Home Alone f you ever fall prey to the idea that “kids these days” ©Patricia Houghton Clarke, 2007 don’t care about the world around them and aren’t willing to put themselves out for others, take another look. A few months ago while having coffee at Handlebar Coffee Roasters, I noticed a gentle young man passing by with his adorable dog, Yahtzee, who was patiently adorned with his owner’s goggles. When he walked past again I couldn’t resist asking him if I could take a photo of his dog. Thomas graciously consented and we began a conversation about his life. He soon walked me back to his family home – probably well known by most in the Santa Barbara area – a big blue converted school bus emblazoned with a flaming sun on the side. I had always wondered who lived there and, in fact, had taken a photograph years ago of two of the family pooches leaning out the window. I asked Thomas about the poster on the back of the vehicle called “Team Jessup” – and he humbly told me a little about his bicycle rides across America to raise funds for the “Half-Homeless” and Santa Barbara’s Safe Sleep program. He has also helped to found the National Safe Parking Program (www.NationalSafeParking.org). Thomas took his first cross-country ride at 14 years of age. At 15 and 16 he rode again, and now at 17 he is going to do it once more, starting in San Francisco on Labor Day, September 2. If you’d like more information about his passion and determination, or if Patriots ©Patricia Houghton Clarke, 2013 you just want to be inspired, go to: www.TJAA.us
