Post-rally dinner at "the Thai place"

The girls were featured in an article in a local paper. I'd rather not link to it here but if you're a regular Bloggie here and you're interested in reading it, let me know.

  5. Echoing Fran at CR's - the heart is full, the eyes are misty. A wonderful witness to truth and love and justice. So proud of your girls (though i have nothing to be proud about there, though you do). Blessings all around.

  6. This needs to keep happening across the nation. Change is coming, but it'll come a lot quicker if we Allies (of LGBTQ&A fame) INSIST on it. There are SO many grounds for our arguments that we can only fail here if we don't all try.

    And Pagan, thanks for the link, I love it when your group of nice friends visit. :)

  7. I love the look on this young woman's face.

  8. Bobbie: I can't thank you enough for your constant vigilance of and support of this issue.

    Fran: And you. Always on top of this as well. I love your ability to connect so many people to any number of important causes. I thank you will all my heart for your love of and commitment to, the human aspects of social/political issues.

    DCup: Thanks. Well, it's preaching to the choir in Northampton, Mass, but the fact that so many people stood worldwide together, on the same day, at the same time. That is really great.

    Sherry. Thanks. ((hug)) what is your email?

    Paul: Thanks again for coming by and leaving such a kind, loving comment.

    I know what you mean about being proud. I was proud of the young people that were there by my daughter and daughter-in-law's sides. The pride comes from, I think, seeing commitment toward a just cause expressed with dignity and without hate.

    CR: You rat. You caught me at my absolute frumpiest in that photo. You owe me one to take a picture of me when I'm dressed elegantly.

    Glad you were there.
