Just got home from the vigil.
DU was represented, as I ran into Bear425.

Very nice turnout - I really didn't try to count, but I'm guessing maybe 200, give or take. We were in front of the Federal Courthouse in downtown Fort Lauderdale, and had folks on all 4 corners of this busy intersection. Seemed to be a lot of support from drivers in the area. There were some Ft. Laud. police there, very visible but not interfering. Lots of local press, and a woman I talked with said she was interviewed by someone from the NYTimes. I'll watch the news at 10 to see if we made it.

This was a mother-son bonding experience. My older son (who starts college next week) went with me - this was a first for both of us.

Anyone else in the area - Another activity on Saturday. "Protest in Solidarity with Cindy - TROOPS OUT NOW!". Saturday, noon to 3, same location.

1. I made a blog entry
...about my vigil in Massachusetts. It was all positive and very uplifting.

We lined one side of the block several deep and then started lining the other side.
