Come downtown and spend the day. Enjoy the beauty of our magnificent locale while remembering the blessing that this pastime represents. Stand up and demand that others worldwide be allowed this same level of human dignity.
There are lots of great local eateries downtown, wonderful food and facilities that don't support the war machine but instead support the same people who bless our corner of the country with a wonderfully diverse and progressive constituency. So come downtown, make a day of it. Protest at your own level, your own pace. Empower yourself to speak peace in the face of violence.
Come downtown, because cops have kids too, they can use the overtime. God knows I wouldn't want to send _my_ kids to a public school, real education is expensive these days. Come downtown so the children of police officers can learn to better themselves, can learn the fallacy of blind obedience.
