Dr. Wayne Dyer
Author, Motivational Speaker
“It is considered the highest level of enlightenment to simply ‘walk as you talk.’ Peace Pilgrim lived out this message and I celebrate her magnificent commitment to peace and harmony in the world. Indeed, she is my hero.”
Poet, Civil Rights Activist
"If a person really knew what goes around comes around, they wouldn’t commit evil acts. But to really know it is to know it in your bones. You can’t do otherwise when you know it. Peace Pilgrim knew it, so she did it."
"[Peace Pilgrim] knew peace started within us, that it had to happen one by one by one. She changed my consciousness, my awareness and my activity. She was very influential and inspirational in my life."
His Holiness the Dali Lama
"Harmony doesn’t come from the sky, it is not from prayer alone, we must act… Hers is a commitment to propagate peace, and express it through the peace walk. Without seeking any money or fame, she carries such hard work sheerly through sincere motivation."
Cherry blossoms were in full bloom in Washington, DC as Peace Pilgrim was among 12 extraordinary people honored as “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence” by the National Women’s History Alliance. See photos and more in our latest blog.
