Today’s media is overwhelmed by “trending” stories, so often they go by so fast that stories and accomplishments from the near past like Emma’s fall through the cracks. But her story resonates with me and also with so many when we get a chance to talk about her.
She certainly fulfills the bill as trend setter, successful ager, role model for young battered women and visionary among pack packers today. She never relented, worked hard all her life, set goals that she followed through on and did it with out worrying about fame , money or celebrity. We need your help to get this story in the public eye.
Join us this holiday in helping to preserve the legacy of Emma “Grandma” Gatewood. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2100362239/meet-emma-gatewood-the-appalachian-trails-legendar. Please pass this on.
