I am still recovering from the amazing day we had yesterday at the National Equality March!
Expect more blogging from me later this week once I finally get back to PA and get back into the groove.
I took a ton of pictures and met a ton of great folks for my project Faces For Equality, which should start going up tomorrow!
Before I hit the road, I want to share two little observations about the march that I am very proud of.
1. Almost every sign that I saw had a very positive message. There was no hate, no attacking, no vitriol. The messages were strong and even demanding, but still positive and generally quite respectful.
2. Of all the signs I saw, from the most professional looking to the most amateur, I did not see a single spelling error. I know this is a petty thing to consider, but given all of the disgusting signs the Teabaggers had with horrible spelling and grammar, I was just delighted to see the civility, maturity, and basic intellect that was driving our movement yesterday. While there may have been exceptions, I sure didn’t see them.
I am excited to see how the movement moves forward and I am excited to share the many stories I heard from folks at the march. Happy Columbus Day!
