I guess it was time, Mike and I aren’t getting any younger. We attended, for the both of us, our very first demonstration. Andy was not given a choice, but the older boys were. We attended our first Tea Party this afternoon. The older boys all joined us. Will our attending or, even, will the event, accomplish anything? Who knows?
But, I have to say it was nice to meet ALL kinds of people who are fed up. There were families with young kids, families with older kids, college folks, young adults, veterans, old people and everything in between. The reports are from the police and the ONE news station that covered the event say that there were 3000 people there. For me, it was nice to feel like I wasn’t a crazy person worrying about all that has been happening over the past months. For the kids, I’m not sure.
I know my readers and I don’t always agree on politics. And, that’s fine. I keep this blog to record what we, as a family, are doing more than anything. I don’t want to censor things that I want to remember. We had a great day and we had a lot of interesting discussions later in the evening.
