From 1953 to 1981 a silver haired woman calling herself only "Peace Pilgrim" walked more than 25,000 miles on a personal pilgrimage for peace. She vowed to "remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food." In the course of her 28 year pilgrimage she touched the hearts, minds, and lives of thousands of individuals all across North America. Her message was both simple and profound. It continues to inspire people all over the world:
"This is the way of peace: overcome evil with good, and falsehood with truth, and hatred with love." This site is devoted to information about Peace Pilgrim. Included is the entire text of a little booklet and spiritual classic called Steps Toward Inner Peace which outlines her pilgrimage and, more importantly, her peace message that covered the entire peace picture: peace among nations, groups, individuals, and the very important inner peace - because that is where peace begins.
