2. Let's hope...
... that there isn't another weather disaster to distract the press from the tens of thousands of us gathered with Cindy in DC again. I plan on attending this time too, to learn how to do whatever it is that I can, to make sure that our government is run by people with common sense, intelligence, and compassion.

I have a dear, dear friend that literally worried herself to death last month as a result of being a Louisiana hurricane victim. She was trying so hard to figure out a way to make things work, keeping things together for her husband and their families, but it was just too much for her. I am heartsick to have lost such a kind, giving person because of neglect from our government and I vow to do what I can to make sure nothing like this happens to anyone else. We need change NOW and we need people to get up off their butts to help make it happen!

The first big DC gathering was peaceful and organized. (There were even plenty of porta-potties!) If you didn't go then, please consider attending this time. Take a look at the listed groups and themes. Find out what YOU can do. There are quite a few choices to pick from. We can't sit back and think that there will be enough other people there to get results accomplished. Do your part!

Okay, that's it for my little soapbox speech. I hope to see lots of DU'ers! Wear your t-shirts, carry signs, shoot... I even had my DU bumper sticker plastered on the front of my t-shirt... LOL! Give a wave if you see one of us, even if you are shy and don't come up and introduce yourself! :hi:

I'd like to see some sort of specific meeting place outdoors, with a banner/sign big enough for us to find, so that we could stop by and say hello to those of us left in this country that are still sane and like-minded thinkers!
