Veni Vidi Vici

Have you heard the one about a picture being worth a thousand words?   Check out this one:

Vic Wise not only walked 100 miles from Richmond, Virginia to Arlington National Cemetery this weekend while carrying a 50-pound rucksack on his back - he completed the 100 mile trek in less than forty-eight hours.  He did so in some extremely bad weather to boot. 

I know not how one person walks one hundred miles without stopping to sleep.  It matters not.  Vic Wise does.  Vic Wise did it.  An extraordinary accomplishment by a quite extraordinary young man. 

He came.  He saw.  He conquered.

And yet we all won.  Every one of us.
