“Pure love is a willingness to give without a thought of receiving anything in return.” *
*Quote by Peace Pilgrim, Mildred Lisette Norman. I learned about her while working on a special project. (Remember our Peace Tree, Mary and Sue?)
From 1953 to 1981, Norman walked more than 25,000 miles on a personal pilgrimage for peace. She vowed to remain a wanderer ”until mankind has learned the way of peace”, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food. In the course of her 28-year pilgrimage, she touched the hearts, minds, and lives of thousands of individuals all across North America. Her message was both simple and profound. See why she made a lasting impression on me.
