The real story here is the strength that has been lent to my heart by the dozens of persons who showed up at the trial and sentencing. For bawling out the "parking vigilantes," I have been sentenced to forty hours' community service, and commanded to write an apology letter. I feel much "off the hook" and very lucky.
I want to thank everone who showed up--and Grace, who made a dinner and delivered it to my house, and Carla, who donated a twenty even though no one asked her to; and Catherine and Dan, who actively did "court support." This escapade has opened my eyes to the fact that there are so many brave, courageous and compassionate people even in my little eddy of the Movement. America the Beautiful came to my aid, at once and without question; it gives me hope that we can defeat Bushistan.
Thanks again so much
