My Lunch Hour 19.Jan.2007 14:50

Joe Anybody

i went to the surge on my lunch
about 3o - 4o people (estimated)
most in front of recruiting office some across street as well
lots of cars honking as they drive by
a few continues police cars circle or stopping close by, but not getting out
no military in sight - doors closed curtains down
seen one corporate news (6) who did an interview
a dozen signs being held toward drivers
lots of peace signs being thrown up
more cars honking

1:15 everybody migrated back into their routines
inspiring, progressive, and seen nice friendly people
keep up the good fight - keep up the spirits
