March 29: Knoxville, TN

While eating lunch after meeting with the mayor, I was just thinking about what an honor it was to be having that conversation. Then, sitting next to me was a family of four women who approached me about my lunch. They said, "it looked good." Of course from there, a conversation was started about my walk because they saw my pack. This family is from Ohio visiting a family member here in Knoxville, TN. The best part of all this was a little girl named Marina. She was excited to be in my video.


After this video she sat down with her family, then a few minutes later walked over to me and said, "David can I give you $10?". How sweet!! But, then she says, "Can I give you a hug?" Break my heart. She was a very smart and sweet child.

Support the walk from coast to coast.

I am walking across our great nation to discover some answers and perhaps wisdom from all Americans!
Come walk with me for 10 minutes or 10 miles. Be a part of my documentary.
