On October 9th, 2013 he was heading east on Highway 40. He was 19 miles west of Kit Carson, Colorado. He was raising awareness concerning bullying and the suicide that sometimes follows. He was hit by a tractor trailer and died immediately.
When I arrived later here is what I saw.
Joseph Bell was pushing a cart across America. I found remnants of his belongings in the grass. Didn’t take anything. Left it laying there.
His son was bullied and took his own life.
