Man walks around the country to create a miracle Featured

CARMEL - A man is walking around the United States to create what he calls, a miracle.

"I believe in this country, I believe everyone in it," said Randy Montgomery, the circle maker, "That's why I am doing what I am doing."

 

Montgomery, 65, set out from his house on a mission.

 

"I want to do something to create goodness in this country and so I took off.

 

After reading the book, "Circle Maker", he knew that he had to do something to "fix this world". He's looking to create a miracle by praying around the country.

 

"If we all became friends in this country, I will call that a miracle," he said. 

 

He started this journey three years ago in California and made it through 14 states. With a heavy backpack, he's traveling this journey alone.

 

"I am always alone," said Montgomery, "It's the loneliest thing I could have imagine doing, so I thank God for all of the people.

 

"People" who he now calls family. He says parting ways is never easy but he doesn't leave empty handed. He has them sign his journal so that he can remember the times that they shared.

 

He says spreading love is easier than people think it is.

 

"Start in your neighborhoods. So many people don't know their neighbors," said Montgomery, "Walk over and say, I am Randy Montgomery, I want to be your friend."

 

From the Great Lakes to the streets of Detroit, Michigan, Montgomery has seen it all. He says all of it has been good.

 

"If you were to take a huge piece of paper and put one black dot in the middle of it, that's how much bad and evil is in the country," he said, "We all focus on that black dot than all the beauty that's around it."

 

He's expecting this journey to take about 10 years, but he's just taking it day by day.

 

"I don't have comfort zone doing this. I don't know where I am going to sleep," he said, "I don't know where I am going to eat. I don't know what's going to happen in the day but I know the day is going to be beautiful, everyday."
