  1. I am humbled to find myself in the footsteps of giants of history. I find myself in awe of the past that I am tracking.
    Its like I can see the bent leaf from the footsteps of the elders who walked here and blazed the path for us all. I
    hope to at least honor their memory and their sacrifice on my journey through this life.
