The starting point of the Sacred Peace Walk was the statue of Martin Luther King Jr. at Martin Luther King Boulevard, North Las Vegas. Symbolically MLK was asked to join in. The walkers also got the blessing of a former chef of the Nevada Test Site, who apparently had a serious disease after having worked there for twenty-seven years. He was a passer-by.
There was singing, a blessing of the participants with sage and off the twenty-five participants went.
There was a strong, hot Southwestern wind, sometimes with force of 60m/h, which led to the idea that camping would be impossible at the end of the first stage.
As far as we know this will however be done. We are awaiting further news.
