Eash-Scott, 25, left from Pittsburgh on Oct. 28, carrying the Mennonite Church USA"By walking, I hope to build awareness," Eash-Scott said.Along his peace trek, Eash-Scott encountered both difficulties and revelations.Hetells stories of his second day of walking when it looked like all his plans weretumbling down around him.His feet had large blisters on them and it hurt to stand,let alone walk."I was cold, could barely stand, and for the first time, I reallycontemplated packing it in," Eash-Scott said. With the help of some well-timed advice from Rachel, his wife, Eash-Scott decided toThroughout that day, Eash-Scott encountered more letdowns; rain, a broken zipper onhis raincoat and a water-fried cell phone.But through it all he felt focused, atpeace and closer to God. That afternoon, Eash-Scott felt the benefits of trusting God."I was soaked and coldand tired and noticed a strange car parked in a turn-about along the side," he said.Eash-Scott made his walking goal thatday, walking 15 miles on the day scheduled for 14.It was a day that, during themorning, he thought he would go five miles. But the hospitality didn't stop there."Only once in two weeks was I taunted,heckled, or jeered," Eash-Scott said.Eash-Scott challenges the nation to represent these people, to do as they do.Heasks for the government to be loving and caring toward other countries, not toinstill intimidation, hatred and fear in the United States and abroad. While Eash-Scott works on establishing a peace stance with the government, many aresupporting him in the background. "Everyone has been very affirming of Peter," said Jack Scott, Peter's father.A total of 40 to 50 people accompanied Eash-Scott at different times throughout thewalk, showing their stamp of approval that peace is the way to go.Between 20 and30 of those supporters walked with Eash-Scott the final nine miles to the LincolnMemorial in Washington.He finished his walk with a speech at the memorial,thanking people for their support throughout the trek and calling for action fromthe government."President Bush has talked a lot about evil in the past year -- the evil doers andthe axis of evil," Eash-Scott said."From one Christian to another, I ask him toremember the biblical call for us to conquer evil with good, not with evil ... theevils of war are never an option."Now able to sleep in his own bed at home, Eash-Scott reflects on his peacefulcrusade."It's about working in very tangible ways in this pain-filled world tobring about the love and grace of God," Eash-Scott said."You have to be the servantof everyone.You have to recognize the pain, sadness and injustice and be willing towork on carrying your flag for peace."
