Seaside, CA - Pacifica, CA

Reported by Salil Wilson 70.0 mi

As you can see it was a gorgeous day. The best weather we have had so far on the west coast.

A passerby offers his best wishes.

Our first event was in Pacifica with the Missionaries of Charity established by Saint Teresa of Calcutta in 1950. One of the sisters fondly remember Peace Run founder Sri Chinmoy visits to Mother Teresa in the Bronx, NY. She commented, "Sri Chinmoy really loved the Mother."

Next we ran to the Pacifica Boys and Girls Club.

We received a very enthusiastic welcome.

Pacifica Mayor, John Keener, presented us with a proclamation.

Nikolaus and Salil invited everyone to go back in time to 1987 to be part of the launch of the Peace Run.

Everyone held the torch and made a wish for peace.

Pacifica Peace People also came out in force to share their hopes and dreams for peace.

Many people kindly shared their prayers for peace.

We were grateful to see Dean, Kinkani and Phaedra (L - R). Kinkani and Phaedra are Peace Run alumni who have both previously joined the US team and run all 10,000 miles. In many ways we feel the aspiration and dedication expressed by previous team members endures and helps carry us forward today.

Kinkani very kindly and selflessly served as the organizer for our events as we passed through Pacifica, San Francisico and Berkeley. Gratitude.

The whole gang!

Some very creative peace symbols made by the Boys and Girls Club.

Thank you.

Please send us a message, we would LOVE to hear from you.
