Peace Pilgrim Walks On...

In one of my earlier blogs I mentioned the Peace Pilgrim...Although I don't believe she ever professed a personal religous belief... I feel she had to be as close to a saint as anyone has ever come...To read more about her go to:

or the latest news letter from Friends of the Peace Pilgrim:

Peace Pilgrim
1908 - 1981
Between 1953 and 1981 Peace Pilgrim walked more then 25,000 miles across the country spreading her message— "This is the way of peace: Overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love." Carrying in her tunic pockets her only possessions, she vowed, "I shall remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food." She talked with people on dusty roads and city streets, to church, college, civic groups, on TV and radio, discussing peace within and without.
Her pilgrimage covered the entire peace picture: peace among nations, groups, individuals, and the very important inner peace—because that is where peace begins.
She believed that world peace would come when enough people attain inner peace. Her life and work showed that one person with inner peace can make a significant contribution to world peace.
