Hearing From the “Locals”

June 25th, 2011

6-25-11Heading south from Vienna, West Virginia, through Parkersburg, we headed across the Ohio River towards Athens, I came across many people who read about One Million Acts Of Kindness in the Parkersburg News and Sentinal. It is great to have a newspaper in a town where we are visiting, write an article about my mission, it seems by the reaction of people I interact with, that the articles have a high readership rate. Two of the people who had read the article were Kathy from the Parkersburg Country Club and Tom Azinger, a WV State Delegate with strong family values. Both were so complimentary in their comments of my mission to raise awareness about Domestic Violence and Childhood Sexual abuse. It is important as I travel, to hear directly from “locals” about their perspective on these two issues.
With the lessening of grade changes, we made our way into Ohio toward three months of relative flatness.
