Al Forte has walked more than 250 miles since August to spread his message: Pray for peace.
Tucked away in a corner in the dining room at Atria Darien, childhood friend Joe Ross, 72, and friend Clarice Flagg, 96, joined Forte, 70, of Stamford, for lunch as he took a break from walking from Boston to New York City.
If you ask Forte how long he’s been walking, though, he’ll tell you he’s been going at it since the age of 1.
“I thought it was a good idea,” Forte said.
During his walk, he wears a navy blue V-neck windbreaker which has “pray for peace” written in large white letters on the front and back.
