Washington II Washington

I read a sad story with an inspiring epilogue today.

Writer and founder of Found Magazine Davy Rothbart met nine-year-old Emmanuel Durant Jr. in 1990, on a basketball court in D.C. Ten years later, Davy was attending his funeral. Emmanuel died while defending his family from a robbery on December 31, 2009.

To honor Emmanuel’s memory, Davy and some of Emmanuel’s family and friends are taking a group of D.C. and Michigan kids to New Hampshire to climb Mt. Washington. They are hoping to make “Washington II Washington” an annual trip. The inaugural trip is in a few weeks, and they are still short a few thousand dollars. If you can give ANY amount, please consider it! Read all about the young hikers and more at this site!
