One man's journey for peace

Bill McDannell is a father of five and grandfather of four, a Vietnam era veteran and a former pastor of the United Methodist Church. Despite considerable evidence to the contrary, he still firmly believes that, as a citizen of the United States of America, he has a voice in the activities of our country, and that his voice can be heard and can have an impact.

On Saturday, November 4th, 2006 Bill began to put that belief to the test. Mindful of our constitutional right to petition the government, on that date he left his home in Lakeside, California to begin a walk that will end in Washington, D.C. He carries with him a petition that he intends to present to both the executive and legislative branches of our government requesting that we, as a nation, declare an immediate end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The above is excerpted from Bill's website, which tells his story, and charts his progress. Bill is in Texas as I write this, and claims that, even there, 98% of the comments he receives are supportive of his effort - most people ask to sign his petition. Do take a few minutes to learn more about his journey at WTETW.COM (That's short for Walk To End The Wars), and look for him if you are fortunate enough to be in the path of his voyage to DC. For those of you who are local to me, his path DOES include Markle, Indiana. . .
