Two women we met on the sidewalk said “Thank you for your service!”
Sam, who was in a wheelchair, also said “Thank you for your service!”

A man in a white shirt and tie said “Good job! I heard you on the news this morning. You’re almost done!”

Ken said “Keep it up! When he asked what the purpose is, he said “Cool! Cool!”

Kat has many health problems, so she is glad that Freedom Walker, at his age, is able to walk!

J. Fernando Panchez expressed his appreciation for the flag of America. He said that America saved him and God wants him to walk from the west coast to the east coast sharing his testimony. He said “Keep doing God’s work!”

We also met Cam, My, Bal, and Ann. Since they understood little English, Pastor “Chick” wrote in the sand to tell them the number of days – and miles – that he walked.

Margaret passed us on the street and said “I was taken by your shirts and had to ask if you’re really walking coast to coast!” It turned out that she works for KNX 1070 News Radio, and though she was already off of work for the day, she interviewed Pastor “Chick” and Barney Musselman, as I was recorded the interview).
