Peace Pilgrim: A Life of Service

“On January 1, 1953, at age 44, Mildred Lisette Norman changed her name to Peace Pilgrim, put
on a pair of canvas sneakers, donned dark blue slacks, blouse, and a tunic–on which she had
sown her new name–and set out to walk the length of the country leaving from Pasadena, CA…She would walk non-stop for the next 28 years, weaving back and forth across the country, and
making several trips into neighboring countries. From the start, her life on the roadwalking,
talking, eating, sleepingwas undertaken as a reverent, loving prayer, integrating, what she
believed were all the important things of life into a penniless, simple, committed existence of
love and service.” More about the remarkable life of Peace Pilgrim here. { read more }
