Steve, as I read your post last night and realized that you would complete your journey today I begin to think of what an accomplishment you have achieved! I couldn’t help but relate it to what Jesus done for each and every one of us. He GAVE his life so that we may in return spend eternity in heaven. What a sacrifice! As I thought about your journey, I thought of your sacrifice for others over the past six months of your life. So many have been touched, encouraged and blessed by your journey. Then upon your return as you continue to establish the Big Brother Big Sister program in Graham County so many more will be helped all because of your willingness to GIVE! I am so thankful for what you mean to my family and I thankful for people like you that are willing to sacrifice your time in order to help so many others. I am certain that even though your journey will come to a close today on the Appalachian Trail you will continue to trek through life being the selfless individual that you are. I am inspired and challenged to do more for others in my own life. I am proud of what you have accomplished and proud to call you my friend.
