Second generation Peace Pilgrim makes second attempt to promote world peace

If you missed the greatThis American Life's episode from 2009 about Daryl Watson's short-lived but laudable attempt to "walk across the country in order to promote world peace and bring harmony to all nations" you might wonder from time-to-time what he is up to. This morning, I was telling my daughter about the original Peace Pilgrim, and so I looked up Daryl and learned that he started his second pilgrimage yesterday. Good luck, Daryl!
