This past weekend was the 18th annual Help The Homeless Walk here in DC. It has been a long time since I've done any walks, sit-ins, shut-ins or any type of physical activity for a worthy cause. The last time that I took a stand or walked for something was back in college in 1992. It felt good to do something for a good cause this weekend. I was invited by a friend of mine who works for Fannie Mae (The sponsors) and although I didn't see her I was in the good company of my special lady, Ntshiuwa. I found out that she can walk waaaaaay faster than me even though my legs are longer.
The weather was nice and cool and the walk was liberating. I think that it kicked me into my 2nd phase of being an activist in my community. It's not out of guilt or lack of charitable contributions to the daily panhandler. I just want to help in any way that I can. It was good exercise too. **smile**
