As Gloria Steinam said today
"The constitution begins with we the people...."
We are very fortunate to live in a country where people can express themselves.
Kudos to those in attendance at Washington Park, as they did so in a very peaceful and respectful manner. I never expected the turnout around the world to be so HUGE!
It's a real statement.
I was already in Rochester for a Ukefest and was picked up by Jenny at 11. Harry Bronson, State Assemblymember (Jenny is his Chief of Staff) was one of the speakers and we wanted to take photos of the event. When we arrived, the crowd was listening to Rochester's Mayor, Lovely Warren.
The statue of Abraham Lincoln was surrounded.
The crowd, well over 1200, was very tuned in.
Harry is all about equality and represents his district well.
I love all the signs.
This movement is about a lot more than the presidency.
We ran into several people from Brockport.
Jenny, Barb and Sandy are all very community minded and care about human rights for all.
My bottom line on all this involves dignity, understanding and humility.
Everyone deserves to be treated fairly and with respect.
I am very glad that we were able to attend one of these history making events.
Did anyone else participate in a rally?
