The Longest Walk Northern Route crossed the Kansas state line today, marking the fifth state for the Long Walkers. It was with great joy today that the Long Walkers planned a feast for the community of Greensburg, Kansas, ravaged by a tornado on May 4, 2007.
When the community of Greensburg apologized for having nothing left to offer the Longest Walk, the walkers organized a feast for the good people of Greensburg.
Since entering Kansas, the Long Walkers have received the most gracious hospitality from the townspeople of Syracuse, Kansas. While camped here last night, there was lightning, high winds and some freezing rain with a little snow whirling around their tents, but the spirits of the walkers was high. The sun returned today.
Please join us in Greensburg to walk and offer a feast to Greensburg, Kansas on Sunday, April 13.
Join us on April 16 at the Mid America Indian Center in Wichita, Kansas.
