Former Vienna Council member walking for ‘intergenerational justice’

Former Vienna Town Council member Robert McCormick embarks in early August on a walk from Denver to Washinton, D.C. McCormick is trying to build interest in "intergenerational justice," or leaving the world in good condition for future generations of people.

Former Vienna Town Council member Robert McCormick, who embarked from the Denver area Aug. 2 on a 1,700-mile cross-country walk for “intergenerational justice,” will arrive in the Vienna area next weekend.

McCormick, 69, is scheduled to depart for his walk’s final stop, the U.S. Capitol, on Sunday, Dec. 9, starting at 8 a.m. from the red caboose located along the Washington & Old Dominion Regional Trail near Church Street, N.E., in Vienna. He invites the public to join him on the walk to the Capitol that day and an aide said he aims to reach that destination by 3 p.m.

Intergenerational justice is the concept that current generations have an obligation to leave the Earth in sound shape for people who will follow. For more information about McCormick’s quest, see the Website at www.awalkforchange.org.
