Armand Young waves to drivers as he walks west on Indiana 930 between New Haven and Fort Wayne on Thursday. The West Virginia native is on his way back to California after collecting more than 550,000 signatures from people pledging an act of kindness in honor of 9/11 victims. He left California in 2007 carrying a 6-foot, 48-pound pole festooned with flags and first responder shields and reached ground zero in 2010 . He expects his walk to last another 11 months.
