Armand Young waves as he walks west on Indiana 930 on Thursday between New Haven and Fort Wayne on his trek back to California. The West Virginia native has collected 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.
