Overview

"This child will never walk," the doctor said.
"Wanta bet?" retorted her mother.
Fifty-nine years later, Donna Love walked over 5,000 miles in three peace walks in the United States and in Russia. Every step was a step toward peace.

In Walking For Our Lives, Donna's third book in the three years since she turned 80, she tells how these peace walks alerted citizens of the world to the futility of the nuclear arms race. She chronicles her evolution from a passive homemaker to an involved peacemaker, and into a life where anything's possible and one person does make a difference.

Let there be peace...

"Journalist, mother and author, in Walking For Our Lives Love captures a combination of pioneer spirit and American zeal that brings back a time when nothing seemed impossible. I felt right there through the heat, sweat and each turn in the road. This must-read book is a reminder of who we are as American women-true, strong, and tenacious. Love's compellng story unfolds on the backdrop of an America in the midst of change that continues to this day, a reminder that individuals contributing together can make a difference."
- Marsha L. Keeffer, MBA

"Donna Love, proper society wife and mother, boldly set out to walk 5000 miles across two continents for peace. Participating in the Great Peace March across the United States and the Peace Walk in Russia transformed her life and her perspective. From page one, I was caught up in Donna's story-watching her change from passive homemaker to passionate peacemaker. This is a story not to be missed!"
- Laura Davis, author of The Courage to Heal and I Thought We'd Never Speak Again

And let it begin with me.
