Walking Changes America—Creating Happier, Healthier Lives, One Step at a Time
I am so excited to share with you my vision for the 2018 Walking With America Campaign. I believe that the walk from Key West, Florida to San Francisco, CA will go down in history as one of the greatest demonstrations of equality and peace, spreading happiness, acceptance, self-love, and love for others from one corner of the nation to the other.
America is hurting, and there are countless symptoms emerging at every turn. As far back as I can remember, we have encountered hate and war on a daily basis, not only on a national scale, but individually. Families across America are feeling the effects of this negativity, and it pains me to the core of my very being.
People are starving for peace, love, and connection—and I believe that my path through America will allow the entire country to participate in many diverse ways. I ask everyone to walk together and show how we can love, instead of jumping to hate.
Many leaders before me have paved the way for peaceful, loving demonstrations of unity and community—I can only hope to add my own small, meaningful contribution to the many programs, projects, and movements that have changed and continue to change lives.
This is my call to you, Dearest Walker Friend—to join me and WALK WITH ME, because Walking Changes America!
Whether it is our current economic or political pains that are pushing the smiles off our faces, or the worry, hate, and fear of the unknown that forces our heads down and keeps our shoulders slumped, know that this walk exists as an antidote.
If it is the lack of self-love, inspiration, support, motivation, community, or anything keeping us from living our best lives, know that I am reaching out with open, gentle, and loving arms.
If we feel stuck on insecurities, or frozen from the sense of loneliness or sadness around relationships within our families or friends, walking will release those negative bonds and offer a new, breathtaking freedom.
If we feel lost within our career, drowning from financial stress, or overwhelmed by the constant noise of social media and blue screens, walking provides that beautiful, desperately-needed respite.
No matter what is keeping us down, holding us back, and preventing us from fully living happy days all day long, know that Walking Changes America!
Whether you walk with me physically or every Saturday morning at 9 AM—for the next six months and hopefully, even after— I will feel your support, your kindness, and mostly, your love. In any way you can, I say, LET’S WALK, AMERICA!
#walkwithme and become a part of the movement, contribute an integral piece of my ultimate vision: to walk together, share a moment of our lives together, and come to happier, healthier understanding of our world.
