Florida woman walks for peace

By Jeff Daley jdaley@wdam.com

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Walk 50 miles in 50 states in 50 weeks, all in the name of peace, that is the mission of Cassandra Curley of Jacksonville Florida.

Curley set out on her journey in Jacksonville February 7th with the goal being to walk in every single state. Wednesday she arrived in Hattiesburg for  two days of walking which included a trip along a portion of the Long Leaf Trace.

Curley says the inspiration for her journey came from a book she has written, "From fear to Eternity, A Path to Peace."

"Fear is the source of conflict and if we can get back to our true nature which is peace and by following nature, which is the perfect model, that's in the book." said Curley. " So I not only wanted to promote the book and promote the message in the book, I want to open minds to the possibility of peace."

So far she has completed about 150 miles of her 2500 mile journey.
