“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.” ~ Peace Pilgrim [Mildred Lisette Norman] (July 18, 1908 to July 7, 1981)
Peace Pilgrim was an American pacifist and activist. On January 1, 1953 she began a walking pilgrimage on behalf of peace and vowed never to stop until mankind stopped war-making. She walked the walk and talked the talk, and continued to do so until July of 1981. Ironically, she died in an auto accident while being driven to a speaking engagement.
Blessings to the memory of Peace Pilgrim.
