Letter of Hope 2007
Gathering the hopes of Americans in their letters and sending them to space. The Mission has been completed. The Hopes are on board the Atlantis Space Shuttle!
It’s been almost 5 years since Joan and I left Seattle WA and embarked on a journey that gave evidence that hope is alive in America. Thousands have etched that hope on paper and left me with the responsibility of getting them into the heavens.
The new launch date is now set for the 11th of May. Joan and I will be at the Kennedy Space Center to watch NASA send the hopes into the heavens!
St. Paul, Minnesota letter carrier Gary Fitch rode a bicycle from Seattle, Washington to Washington DC to ask for letters of hope and share his hopes on his journey in the summer of 2007. And his “journey” still continues as he strives to give back to his community in any way possible.
To all of those that have followed me through these past years with my effort to send the hopes of the children into the heavens, I thank you! I’d like to take this opportunity to ask that you look into what I’m hoping to do next ~~ go to my blog!
