Sole to Soul: Walking for Women

posted by Margaret Wolff

“There are times when I get tired. … And there were times when I was afraid. Sometimes I have moments when things seem futile. What steadies me though, is that I know my commitment and passion will not waiver — not because I’m willing it, but because I am so carried by it. — Sister Helen Prejean, IN SWEET COMPANY: CONVERSATIONS WITH EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN ABOUT LIVING A SPIRITUAL LIFE

Sunrise, Tuesday morning. March 8 th, 2011. The 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day. Five walkers set out from Oceanside, California for a 7 month trek across America. 2,639 miles. They are walking in our name, to affirm, promote, and celebrate the ways women change the world for the better, to make a profound statement about our need — THE need — for women to more actively participate in the decisions that shape our future. The challenges they meet on their journey are intended to help women move beyond the limitations of self and circumstance that keep us bound.

Along the way, they will come together with others who share their vision. They will hold gatherings — sit, talk, teach, and listen. Some will walk beside them; others will walk with them in Spirit. On September 21 st, 2011, International Peace Day, they will arrive in Washington D.C.

To shepherd them along — be it sole to soul or soul to soul — visit http://www.women-walk-the-land.com/index.html. :Saunter or sashay. Tramp or plod. Do not dawdle. Do not tread lightly
