The good news is that, if the other events across the country were like Des Moines, we are definitely beginning something that can make a difference.
I appreciated the fact that the organizers were intent on ensuring the event was non-partisan.Â Even when Republican lawmakers came out to the event, they were asked to step aside… they were not allowed to be the center of attention.
I got a bunch of crowd, sign and speaker photos.Â I’m trying out Flickr.Â I haven’t had time to make it all perfect, but want to see how well this is received.Â Let me know.
One big highlight was a large sign in the back that read “Declaration Of Independence” for people to sign to show their support.Â By the end of the event, it was covered with signatures.Â I thought that was really cool.
It will be interesting to see how the Main Stream Media reports this tomorrow.
The entire set can be found at Flickr at this link.
