United States 15 May: Eldon, Missouri - Sedalia, Missouri
Inspiring Church visit.
The Peace Run team started Sunday with a ceremony at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Jefferson City. Salil, Peace Run Executive Director, was warmly welcomed by Betty Cooper, one of the Church members.
The artwork "Peace is Precious", by Sri Chinmoy, was also presented to the Church and is held here by Pat.
Route 50 was busier than we expected for a Sunday. The route varied between narrow and steep verges to wider and flatter roadsides. Drivers were very supportive and encouraging towards us.
Lucie from the Californian Democrat newspaper stopped to interview the mens team and hold the Peace Torch. She is shown here with a local law enforcement officer.
Tavishi was the first woman to start running today. She made sure that the road was clear before stepping out.
