Darius Visits the Sandors in Fleetwood

May 28, 2012

Quote of the day: “Did y’all see that horse-and-buggy?”–Pete (Darius’s stepdad)

After hanging with Tracy and gang in Delaware, D led the crew west to Fleetwood, PA.

The drive there was gorgeous, and included several passages through Mennonite country. Passing a horse-and-buggy on the highway (and even seeing one parked at a gas station!) was a mind-blowing experience, especially for Darius’s stepdad Pete, who had never been above the Mason-Dixon Line before this trip.

We came to Pennsylvania to visit Fleetwood Middle School.

Fleetwood Middle School is where Owen Sandor goes, and it’s only a few miles from the home of the Sandor-McDonnell family (Tom and Aidan are pictured–and Song, Aidan’s service dog, is the blonde blur at the bottom of the screen). Aidan, Tom, Maria, Ethan, and Owen were featured in Darius Goes West to give their insights into facing DMD, and they’ve been close friends of the crew and the cause ever since.

Kim Price, a guidance counselor at FMS, did a great job in coordinating the students’ efforts to fight DMD.

In addition to listening to D perform, students braved a long line to ask Darius questions…

and LONGER lines to get “Believe” tour t-shirts, bracelets, and CDs with D’s three iTunes songs.

As always, though, the hottest-ticket item was a hug with Darius.

Afterwards, we headed to the Sandors’ for a relaxing evening, hanging out with great friends.

Thank you, Pennsylvania!
