Johnny Barnes

In this day and age it’s so painfully rare that you come across an individual who does something simply for the sake of making others feel good. 88-year old Johnny Barnes however is such a person and truth be told, if everyone was like him, the world would be a better place. You see Mr. Barnes does one very simple thing every morning between the hours of 6 am and 10 am on his home island of Bermuda. He stands on the roundabout in his town and tells passersby that he loves them. He wishes them well and a wonderful day and because of this act he’s become somewhat of a local icon. To the residents of Bermuda old Johnny Barnes is a fixture and a way to start their day and in my opinion, he does more for everyone who sees him then a cup of coffee ever could.
