LAWRENCE, Kansas -- The Longest Walk 4 Return to Alcatraz walked into Lawrence, Kansas, on Friday, Sept. 20, 2013
Photos by Carl 'Bad Bear' Sampson, thank you from Censored News! Bad Bear said today, "All the walkers left looking for other walkers to go all the way with us."
Bad Bear said at Haskell Indian University, "We circled up and said a prayer, then sang the AIM song. We have 26 miles to do each day until next Saturday, 170 miles to Wichita!"
