I have been doing “The Walk’ for more than twenty-five years, which is over half of the total forty-nine year existence of the Walk for Hunger. And still hunger exists for 700,000 people in Massachusetts, despite my efforts and the efforts of thousands of others over the past four decades. Hunger exists in every city and town, including Watertown and Belmont.
I regret that I will be walking again this year. In a country with our wealth, even in these tough economic times, it is truly regrettable that the Walk has to be held year after year. And the economic times are affecting the least fortunate the worst. The numbers of hungry people are growing, with one-third of these being children.
My supporters, all of you, are my heroes. Every year, I think that this will be my last walk. But then I think that I can not afford to give up the pledges coming from my supporters. You keep me walking, year after year!
