1,990,000 steps into the unknown

http://youtu.be/PjJ2cYdSjxg

 One weekend

Kids

wearing real names on their wrists

of those

who lived–

                                          and died

for a cause

 of faith

walked in their shoes!

One was mine…

History is made up of real stories of real people.

What do we live for– or perhaps are passionate enough to die for?

                    For them it was 1,990,000 steps west, into the unknown, to freely worship without being killed–carrying the knowledge that most would die trying.

And so many did.

Amazing!
