I have always regretted that I was not really old enough to defy my parents and really do the peace movement thing back in the Vietnam era. Tonight I finally got the chance to stand with those I support - and take a stand for Peace.
My first peace protest. Some of the nicest, most sharing and caring people I've met in a long time - all with the same agenda - from all sorts of walks of life. The lady in the designer outfit with the faux(?) fur coat - to the guy in the blue jeans and ragged coat.
There were about 3 signs this big that I saw walking around. Not sure if it was the same people, or different groups.
This was the group across the street from where I was. In total, I'd say we had about 4 or 5 times this many people, at a very busy intersection near the train station in downtown Glen Ellyn.
The guy with the peace sign banner came over where I was for a bit - it's really pretty. I love that shade/hue of blue.
Pay no attention to the fat lady in the funny pink hat behind the sign - but Honk!! Lots and lots of people honked. We had a lot of support, and only one guy that I saw who flipped us off and shouted something hateful - but I couldn't hear him or understand it, so I ignored him.
I will do this again.
