It is happening!!!
Today, KPFK began to make announcements about the Walk for Hope on their esteemed radio station (90.7 FM for all you folks in the Southern California area… www.kpfk.org to listen on-line). Today alone, eight people registered for the walk through the website… and the night has just begun.
Tomorrow, the Aware Show on KPFK has asked me to speak about the Walk for about 10-15 minutes. 1pm if anyone wants to tune in.
Is all this an opportunity to get more walkers signed up? Most definitely. More importantly, however, it is just another opportunity to inspire service… and that opportunity exists in every moment of our lives. It exists as we face audiences of hundreds, and it also exists as we sit at Thursday meetings licking stamps on envelopes.
We can never know how many people will attend the walk until 9/11. At this point it doesn’t matter… we have already inspired service in each other. Irrespective of how many people actually attend, I know that the journey itself has been worth it. There is a volunteer out there that spent the day cutting and pasting signs for the walk… the opportunity to do service has transformed her life. She will not be a statistic on the day of the event, yet this Walk for Hope is for her.
Ultimately, we will never know how our actions contribute to the lives of others.
