Set the Scene or Drop It

I recently returned from a 12-day trip to the Hudson River Valley. Our group visited Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt’s home, the Frederick and Louise Vanderbilt estate, learned about slavery in the area and toured the 18th century Gomez sawmill site. It was an excellent Road Scholar trip, AND, along the way,  I sold copies of Walking for our Lives.

While discussing the book with a friend, I randomly opened to page 91 and read, “On Friday, May 30, Congresswoman Pat Shroeder came out to our muddy campsite at 7:30 in the morning to speak to us. Then The Great Peace filed into downtown Denver and brought traffic to a standstill.”
