United States 28 April: Anderson, South Carolina - Athens, Georgia
Georgia On My Mind
Although we pass by many cows on our daily runs, this was the first time we were able to pass the Peace Torch to some very interested cows.
Malena holds the Torch with her sister and mom. She wore a batman cape the during the race which probably helped her to beat her older sister.
Dr. Robin Koenig shares the Torch with our women's team. She very kindly worked on Rupasi after she had fallen and injured herself. Robin offered her services for over an hour with no fee. We are very grateful for her oneness and her heartfelt contribution to the Peace Run in terms of much needed medical attention.
The men's team finshed their morning run to Bowman and met the other teams for lunch and an exchange of vehicles.
Valerie, a New Yorker visiting in Bowman, stops to share the Torch offering her kind words and good will.
Other peace lovers along the way share the Peace Torch and offer their wishes and good will as well.
Nicolaus and Arpan in front of the Georgia Guidestones, a very interesting formation of granite stones with some words of wisdom for future generations.
Stopping to get one of our vehicles checked out, we met a very nice mechanic and his friend who cheerfully shared the Torch with us and inspected our car without charge.
At the end of the day we were warmly greeted by Dan and Kate Everett who kindly hosted us for the night at their wonderful home, complete with a large, healthy vegetabe garden.
