We arrived in Chehalis late yesterday after walking 20 miles!
We are rather sore, but very determined to get our message out.
We continue to meet good people along the way and, so far, everyone with whom we have spoken has been in some way affected by the broken mental health care system. We are deeply saddened by the accounts we are hearing and the importance of our mission has been affirmed again and again.
We urge those of you who have stories to write them down and email them to us. Togther our stories have much power. There are many common themes of systemic abuses which must be identified and stopped. Please post you stories on our stories page or e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to have 100 stories for 100 miles.
We are grateful to the good folks who have helped us along our way, given us a bed, discounts, ice tea, water and directions – shared stories and shed tears.
Today, we hope to reach our half-way mark, so wish us luck.
