Temple Walk

our stake's youth had a goal to walk from our stake center to the temple in one day. That is 22 miles. The youth got to practice for a couple of weeks for this venture but not Graham. He did it without practicing. When I saw him at mile 11, he was hurting. He had already developed a blister on his heel. I could see that he wanted to quit but he had to save face.

Over 100 youth and 50 leaders participated in this walk. At the end of the walk, the temple president and his wife gave a talk in front of the temple about how we can do hard things.

this was the second blister Graham had at the end of the walk. He was in so much pain, he couldn't even walk to the house from our car. Emerson had to go get crutches for him.
