Support The Walk to End the War

I've not posted anything about Bill McDannell in a while, but he's still on his walk to end the war, and has made it to Kansas.

In case you don't know the story, Bill is a VietNam Vet and a former Methodist minister. Back in November he sold his home, left San Diego on foot, and set off for Washington DC with a petition to end the war in hand, and he's gathering additional signatures along the way. His wife of 14 years, Jonna O'Dell, is accompanying him in their 20 year old motor home. She drives ahead a few miles, waits for him to catch up, and then goes ahead again.

They've got the guys with them too. Here's a picture of the guys.

They're currently near Lawrence, Kansas. That means he's walked about 1,800 miles so far. Amazing.

According to the report I read this morning, they're starting to run low on funds. Bill won't stop, but they're talking about Jonna, the guys, and Nessie (the motor home) staying in Missouri with family, and Bill going on alone. They've had some trouble keeping Nessie going.

I don't know about you, but I HATE the thought of them not going on together, and Bill doing this alone. They have a paypal account. Please avail yourself of that convenience. Obviously, he's dedicated and will keep on going, but let's give him a hand.

So...terryfaceplace sez, read Bill's blog because it will show you his dedication and what kind of man he is, and then send him some bucks. Or send money first. Either way....let's keep the Walk to End the War going so Bill can get to Washington with his petition....and Jonna and hopefully Nessie and the guys too!
