The Walk: Day One





The walk started off with a great demonstration at the San Diego County Courthouse. Approximately 50 supporters attended including giant puppet images of Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King. The CBS TV station recorded the proceedings and interviewed me. Representatives from CPF, AIUSA, DPF, ACLU, and the California Innocence Project spoke in opposition to the death penalty. The final speakers were Jeff Ghelardi and I.

The candle of hope was lit at 10:00 and the march started. Most of the fifty supporters followed the candle through downtown for about a mile. A few hearty souls walked for ten miles, at which point Jeff and I continued.

At about mile eight, Telemundo Channel 17 interview Jeff and filmed the walkers. Tomorrow at 7:00 AM Jeff and I will continue the march starting at Kearney Villa Road one mile north of Clairemont Mesa Blvd.
