Never Stop Walking: A Memoir of Finding Home Across the World
by Christina Rickardsson
The Journey Begins
Umea, Sweden – Winter 2015
One sunny day three years ago, I woke up afraid. Terrified is more apt. I was terrified of living. I’d hit the wall. Everyone knows about that wall. You can hit it at different speeds. You can run, jog, or trudge into it. The faster you’re going, the more it’s going to hurt when you hit it, and the greater your injuries will be. It’s simple math, and equation that makes altogether to much sense. I had run straight into that wall at speak speed, as if I were running a four hundred meter race.
