At the 19th New Life Walkathon on April 15, 2018
There is a yearning along the path walked alone, love along the path walked by two people, friendship along the path walked by three people, and comfort and strength along the path we walk together hand in hand. Holding the hands of people in their times of hardship gives them hope for life and holding their hands when they’re feeling exhausted by life and losing the will to live helps them get back up again.
Today, as we hold hands walking together, we will take vigorous, hopeful steps together to encourage and support our neighbors in difficulty to get back up with courage and hope. People are more beautiful than flowers. You are precious, and your life is precious.
