On August 8th of 2016, I set out to highlight the value of face-to-face conversation to the American people, one step at a time. I am on a trek across the United States on foot to engage and inspire people I meet along the 3200 mile journey. While on the road, I am striving to spark a national conversation about conversation.

While I acknowledge the benefits of social media and instant communication, I believe it is essential to maintain our ability to effectively interact face-to-face. In dialog with others, we learn to better understand each other and grow as a community.
