Editor’s note: This letter was written to Feather River College instructor Darla DeRuiter and her environmental studies class praising their random act of kindness to a lone hiker, Scott Hewett, in the Bucks Lake Wilderness Area.
“To be sure, this (letter) is not so much about my brother and me. It is more about letting your students know what kind of an impact they can have upon other peoples’ lives through random acts of kindness.”
The author’s brother Doug stands above Rock Lake on their last backpacking trip together seven years ago. Author Scott Hewett loves the picture because the silhouette resembles a “bat” with his trekking poles and all-black attire. After returning home from his encounter with the Feather River College group, Scott looked at the picture and it struck him that this is exactly what the class members did: “They raised their arms like that and created a tunnel for me to go through. I like to think of it as more of a ‘passage.’” Photo courtesy Scott Hewett

Without boring you too much, let me explain:
