Rereading Stephen King: week seven – The Long Walk

A dystopian novel by Stephen King. Quite horrible, good ending. Great book.


The spiritual discipline of the long walk


The amazing autobiography of Nelson Mandela. It is a long book, but very inspiring. If you feel like you don't really know South African history of apartheid this book is the way to read about it. Mandela's story and his ability to forgive will inspire and amaze.


Navajo on Long Walk - The Long Walks started in January 1864. Bands of Navajo led by the Army were relocated from their traditional lands in eastern Arizona Territory and western New Mexico Territory to Fort Sumner (in an area called the Bosque Redondo or Hwéeldi by the Navajo) in the Pecos River valley. Bosque Redondo means "round forest" in the Spanish language. At least 200 died along the 450-mile (500 km) trek that took over 18 days to travel on foot.


The Long Walk is depressing, exhausting and brutal. But ultimately it is a beautiful story that makes you aware how great it is to be alive.


"I want it too. I want all of it. I want the pointless bickering, the long walks, the late night phone calls, the good morning texts. I want cute pictures with you, to hold your hand, to call you baby. The joking, the wrestling, the fights. I want to be those inseparable best friend couples that people are like "you're still together?" That's what i want. I want you." #quotes #letter
