THOUGHTS ABOUT A JOURNEY OF HOPE IN ALABAMA

We have just completed a very successful Journey of Hope in our state and our thanks go to Bill Pelke and to all who worked so very hard to organize it. No small task! Certainly no state needs a Journey of Hope-from Violence to Healing more than Alabama!
