Today, I was a part of history. I attended my first rally ever, along with hoards, upon hoards of people on the Washington Mall in D.C. People of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, beliefs, religions, ethnicities, and ages answered the call made by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. We are Americans who are not extreme, who believe in healthy debate, who are fed up with nonsense and the lack of accountability in politics and the media, and who believe that we can change as a country. We are a group that doesn't believe that the loudest voices are the only ones that should be heard. If everyone is yelling, no one is listening, and therefore nothing can be done to fix the problems at hand. Well, today we spoke our minds with our cleverness, our humor, and by our presence. It was Amazing.
|This is where we began. We slowly made our way to the front.|
| "for a reasonable tomorrow" - Shortly after we made it onto the Mall. |
This kid was living it up - so many photographs!
| "All We Are Saying is Give Reason A Chance" - At 7th and Madison. |
By this point we can actually hear Stewart and Colbert.
|SO MANY PEOPLE! We're almost to the Capitol.|
|"What do we want? Reasonable Discourse. |
When do we want it? Sometime in the not-too-distant future."
