REACHING BEYOND THE CHOIR
Lots of people complain that we are often "preaching to the choir". Peace walks give us great opportunities to reach well beyond our normal activist boxes. Both the organizing of a walk and the actual walk itself introduces us to many new people and organizations.
The sharing community that gets created during a walk is more than magical and sends sparks out into the air as we pass through rural and urban settings. People take notice and open themselves to the message and spirit of the walk.
I been involved in about a dozen or so walks. They are life changing experiences and I look forward to this one as well.
