Walk Granny Walk..

Granny D

Walking across the country from California to Washington D.C to stand up for something that they believe in, whoever thinks to attempts that voyage? I’m sure the thought has crossed many people’s mind just thinking it be something just to say you did kind of how Forrest Gump just decided to run. That’s beside the point, this activist stood up for something that she believed in and followed through with it even being at the age of 90 when she did. Doris “Granny D” Haddock a political activist sought to bring the people of the United States awareness and support of campaign finance reform. In doing this it took her 14 long months, and 3200 thousand miles away from home, along here journey she influenced many people to do what they believe is right and do whatever it takes to accomplish their goal. She may not have been a famous activist but it only takes one act and one thing to prove a point. Her walk across the county showed people that it clearly doesn’t matter how old you are you can always make a difference if the topic at hand is important enough to you to change. To me Granny D inspires me to fight for the things that I believe in no matter how long it takes just as long as you make it to where you want to be. I don’t know much about activism as a whole but reading the definition I can clearly tell that she is an activist and will always be in my eyes.
