Life is a journey, not a destination. No one knows that better than David Merritt.  This past March the Bedford County resident set off on a journey across America, on foot, to talk to everyday people about the current state of the country.  He was looking for answers to some of life’s bigger questions, including, “How do we come back together?”  His goal was to figuratively and literally walk down the middle of the road and invite all those who would walk with him to share their visions of a better nation.

Now he’s sharing their visions, comments, and stories with the world.  Intertwined with their stories is his own story, and how his journey changed him.  David will be sharing all of these stories at all Bedford Public Libraries this November.  Come join him on his journey and learn some answers to the question, “How?”
