Doris “Granny D” Haddock shares her personal story about taking bold action for a cause, and walking across America at the age of 89 . . .
EXCERPT: “Well, was that me? Old Doris? It was not the Doris who sat meekly among them a year and a quarter earlier. Even at my age, I had changed quite a bit. For the first time in my life, I was clearly not afraid of what someone might think of me – I cared more about the issue than my vain self.”
