Saturday found us leaving the RV park at 7:30AM (it was still dark!) and making it to the Mall by 8:30ish. Crowds poured in all morning. We heard horror stories of subways breaking down, people walking miles and only arriving as the rally finished. Thank goodness we only experienced delays getting back to the RV (2.5 hours!). But all that fades when we think about how very great the day was. Hundreds of thousands of people poured onto the Mall to show support for moderation, reason, and civility. Humor (and politeness) abounded. And the music was outstanding. But nothing beat the cleverness and creativity of the signs.
Best article about the rally here on CNN (and lots of good signs mentioned here).
