Short and Sweet Update

Courtesy, Chief Brenton W. MacAloney, Westminster F.D.We had a hot and windy walk from 'lemonstah' through Fitchburg to 'Westminsta' where the World was kept safe in the Fire Station cradled in their boat. We were invited by a sweet family for a healthy dinner and a shower (for which we are grateful.) This Morning we have been walking in a cooler wind through Gardener, the Chair city, and are taking a shade break close to a pond by the side of 2A. It is beautiful today and the air smells cleaner than I have sensed in a good while, very refreshing.
I must have done something right in bringing up my son. This morning a funeral procession passed by and we both stopped, removed our hats and respectfully waited for the cars to pass. I am proud that my son has respect for others...
Have a wonderful day New England!

We saw you in Templeton center today, and everyone in the car was excited to see what was going on! We saw the website on the globe and read about your journey! We think you are doing a great thing for a great cause! Keep up the great work!

It was great to see you outside of my job and to share a little bit of conversation! You are doing a very good thing and sharing this with your son is so wonderful too! Many more happy miles!

Thanks for stopping to chat with me. I met you on the corner of 2A and 202 today in Templeton. I truly admire what you are doing. Enjoy the rest of your journey.

I was just up in Trenton, ME visiting my sister when we saw you and my sister said that is the World Guy who is doing a walk for diabetes awareness and to my astonishment when I turned and saw you I realized my son and I had seen you right as you were settling in for a break by the lake that you spoke of here. At that time I had no idea what you were doing but knew that it had to be something with traveling the world. I feel honored to have been able to see you and your son not only once but twice in your travels! Keep up the great work although I do not have diabetes myself I do know others that do and have also known some who have lost the battle. You are a true inspiration for all. Best wishes on the rest of your journey!!
