Walking in peace for peace

By Nicholas Johnson | Apr 12, 2017

Nearly 50 people of various ages, racial backgrounds and religious affiliations gathered at Endeavour Elementary School in Harbour Pointe on Saturday morning, April 8, to walk in peace from the school to Pointe of Grace Lutheran Church nearly a mile away.

The “Walk for Hope, Rally for Peace” was organized by Mohammed Riaz Khan, President of the Islamic Center of Mukilteo.

It sought to raise awareness of the issues of mental health, firearms safety, drug abuse and nonviolence in a community that has been deeply affected by suicides and a mass shooting.
