“Walk a Mile in Her Shoes”

June 13th, 2011

6-14-11Riding a bicycle 7,400 miles to raise awareness for Domestic Violence and Childhood Sexual Abuse gives me the opportunity to meet many professionals who work tirelessly to help put an end to the pain and suffering some people live through because of these two issues. While talking with Lynea Woody of the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence a week ago, she mentioned an upcoming event being held on Father’s Day in DC. It was an event that I didn’t give much thought to because I would be a couple of states to the west. The more I thought, the more I realized that this would be one of those opportunities that I shouldn’t miss out on participating.
“Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” is an event being organized in the DC area by the DCCADV, urging all men who are brave enough to put on a pair of high heeled shoes to show their support against Domestic Violence by walking one very long mile. We are going to do a giant U-turn and head back to DC for the day to take part in this very worthy cause.
In looking at today’s photo, two things are apparent;  1.) It is going to be a very, very long mile  2.) I’m thinking most women would love to have these legs…or at least the guy who comes with them…just kidding!!!
