The We Are One demonstration was held in front of McMurran Hall at Shepherd tonite, and John Case and I were there (as was Delegate Doyle and about fifty people). We couldn’t light the candles because the wind kept putting them out, but we made and listened to speeches… this was a really liberal crowd… had some conversations afterward, then wondered what we’d be able to do next.
Frankly, I really don’t know.
Here are some pictures, but I apologize for the quality… low light and a bad flash… I’ve edited them as well as possible.
8:00PM to 08:45PM
