Seattle Peace Runner and her local team. Rupasi had these words to offer:
"Peace will always find a way. That's because humanity loves peace, and cares more for goodness and friendship. When you watch the news, you can't see it. But when you meet the people of this world, it is easy to see that we all want the same thing. It is even as simple as wanting a smile on your face and a smile in your heart.
During this 'virtual' Peace Run, I experienced such friendship and happiness among those people I have passed by countless times, on my way to the park or just out for a walk/run. Before this Peace Run, I didn't really know them, but now I have so many friends here, in my own personal world. It feels like Peace Run is here, in my own backyard, and my own front yard as well as in the entire world. Peace is always here, like the sunshine, and with or without the clouds. It is either in full view, or just a bit out of sight, but still there just the same.
And people from all around the world were able to join the Peace Run Team, here in North America. It feels like the world heart of peace is focusing here on North America, with a prayer for transformation and a continuing hope for oneness, kindness and love."
