He stands out­side Ma­rina Vil­lage Mid­dle School and of­fers kids words of wis­dom and a fist bump to start their day. It be­gan when Wally and his wife, Jenny (who lives with him nearby but can no longer make the walk), wanted “to talk to them about phi­los­o­phy [and] be­ing kind,” he said. Some of his most mem­o­rable say­ings are im­mor­tal­ized on a school mu­ral, such as: “Be kind when­ever pos­si­ble. It’s al­ways pos­si­ble.”
