Home After All Those Years

(Natacha Pisarenko/AP Photo)Jean Beliveau left his home in Montreal 11 years ago. At the age of 45, he was running away, literally - he ran all the way to Atlanta, Georgia. Then he decided to slow down to a walk. He walked 75,000 kilometers across 64 countries.

And with the help of his wife, Luce - who cheered him on from Quebec - he found a purpose along the way. His solo journey around the globe became a way to support peace and non-violence for children. Jean Beliveau arrives back home, after all that time, today.

Jeanette Kelly caught up with him the day before he arrived home.
