Eugene peace march went well

A great day!
I'm not any good at estimating crowds, but it was a large and spirited one. Several hundred at least. The largest demonstration I've seen in the two years I've been in Eugene. We marched around downtown, past the Saturday Market, and then had a rally near the courthouse with some heartfelt speeches. It looks like we're coming back together.

I was on amtrak missing every protest everywhere. Discussing it a lot of course. :)
Plus not to mention it had me participating in the entire 24 hour period called (car free day).
I heard there was a great poster at the Eugene protest where a little girl had drawn the
words "Mr. Bush, stop hurting people, you need a time-out" or some such.

Warms my heart.
