Cecelia quietly left the hospital at
6:30 a.m. last Friday, her release
unannounced to the media until later
that day, to begin what her family
hopes will be a private normal life.
Leaving the hospital with her
new guardians, the little girl smiled
as she drove past the medical parking
structure she nicknamed the
"carslide" and talked about the trees.
On the way to Alabama with her
new family, she expressed no fears
about flying. "It was something that
was discussed with her ahead of
time," said hospital spokesperson
She understands that she has lost
her family and that she is the only
survivor of the devastating crash, but
she has no memory of it.
Cecelia has scars on her legs,
arms, hands, and part of her lower
back, but none on her face. Facial
scars are the scars that most often are
blamed for inhibiting a nomal life,
according to Dr. Jai Prasad, assistant
professor of surgery and acting
director of the Burn Center.
Prasad described Cecelia, saying,
"Her general attitude was one of the

"We walk because people around
the world walk for fuel, water, and
food," Barbieri said.
Doug Koepsell, arrangements
coordinator of the walk, made sure
all the participants had a safe walk
and a good time. "We are real
fortunate in the United States to
have material poscssions. This is
our chance not to give handouts, but
the tools to survive," he said.
Mostly church organizations and
local school children participated in
Sunday's hunger walk in what
Barbieri called, "a community proj-
ect that implies global concern."_
Barbieri hoped to draw 800 people
and $50,000 dollars, but bad weather
kept participation down to 419
walkers and funds down to approxi-
mately $25,000. Last year 725
people walked and the event raised
Barbieri remained optimistic. "We
still walk on cloudy, rainy days
because individuals around the world
always walk," he said
Sponsors donated money on a per
mile basis. Participants chose
between a five or 10 mile walk, and
could be. seen around Ann Arbor,
including the University's Central
and North Campuses.
One person participating in the
walk called the event "an important
issue which makes a statement about
hunger and forces others to think
about the issue... The community
sees everybody walking together."
Many elementary school students,
including Christine Gelletly,
participated in the walk. Christine
said she and her friends "want to
show people that there is a great
need to raise money for the hungry
and the homeless."
The funds will be divided among
relief programs in Ann Arbor and
abroad. One-third of the collected
funds will be sent to Cambodia to
finance irrigational and agricultural
projects. Another 15 percent will go
to Honduras to expand food
production programs, and 25 percent
will be labelled as undelegated funds
and be sent to various countries in
need of hunger relief programs.
