  3. Cristi,
    It was so wonderful to meet you this weekend. I hope we stay in touch and I am so glad we were able to draw strength from each other during this incredible event. I have a feeling we both might stay connected to this event, so it probably won’t be long until I see you again.

    • Thank you Kiran! I am so glad we got to meet and walk together. It really did make a huge difference to have so many of us who truly understood. I hope to see you again next year!!

  4. Love, love, loved your post! A good friend of mine was there, and she completed it again and I believe she’s done it for years. Thank you for sharing your photographs and your experiences. I cried reading you post because it reminded me so clearly that everyone, no matter what you are dealing with, needs honest, unconditionally support. Thank you! I’m so glad I found your blog through the Honest Voices link-up.
