9.12.09 March on Washington

 

I hear, I know. I see, I remember. I do, I understand. ~~Confucius

The two oldest girls and I flew out to Washington D.C. to participate in the 9.12 rally! It was an AMAZING experience, and one that I am sure they will remember for the rest of their lives. My friend V (who we met up with while there) summed it up with these words, “It was like the biggest family reunion you’ve ever been to. Just friends you’ve never met before. There was no measurable demographic…all ages, sizes, ethnicities. And denominations.”

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    Loved the pictures…and seeing that quote brought tears to my eyes too! I am so happy that you were able to go with the girls and have such a wonderful experience. We enjoyed reading and hearing about it (and knowing you were there)!
