We'd been hearing about a lot of difficulties that people we knew were having back in Canada. Roxanne wrote a letter back to her Mom that included this: "...about the second day into our walk, at dinner time a German woman was asking everyone around the table why they were walking. I started to think about that and I realized that I am loved and blessed - there is no pain or difficulty in my life right now, our children are healthy and happy, I’ve always had good work and a supportive husband, always had good food to eat, our country is not at war…. There are no big problems in my life. I knew that there was a reason for us to be doing this, and I started to realize that we walk to give strength to others so that they may find peace. I know that through the suffering that everyone is having eventually comes understanding and strength. That is our prayer for you and for all of us..." We lit candles for everyone.
