I was at Washington Square Saturday having a picnic with my family while the peace rally was going on. There were a few hundred people making their voices heard including the Progressive Democrats and the Quakers. The Quakers set up a large memorial of empty shoes commemorating soldiers and civilians who lost their lives in Iraq. The Ron Paul campaign set up a booth and warned us that none of the leading Democratic candidates are promising to pull out of Iraq. Rocky closed the rally with his indictment of the president’s blundering and abuse of our nation and our troops in Iraq.
Our mayor gives a great speech. The out of town relatives only heard a minute of it but they were impressed.
