Thanks for the info.  If I lived there, I'd be there.  Unfortunately, Obama has already put this one to bed without any resolution.  Like he said, "look forward" and that's what we do.  Wonder if he'll even be listening on Sunday, or if he remembers his campaign rhetoric from yesteryear.

 Changes can and do come, issues are put to bed if we do nothing.
I will be out there tomorrow for the following two reasons.

 "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter" Martin Luther King

You know the people in Germany did nothing and we know what happened.


I wonder if he listens when his daughters ask why are all those people standing outside with signs.

There was such fanfare when the 2000th casualty occurred in Iraq.


Barely a whisper as we lose the 2000th soldier in Afghanistan, obama's war.

Thank you for the inspiring quotes.   I wish I lived in DC for times like these.  Thanks for being there tomorrow.

It was a hot one in D.C. today, hats off to those that marched all the way to White House with those black hoods on in 90 degree heat.
It was good to see so many new fresh young faces taking part in the action today.
My pics from today are at link below if anyone is interested.
Any bloggers such as Catboxer or anyone in general feel free to use any pics for non profit.
