Solitary Protest Recap
|| 2/4/2003 || 10:07 am || Comments Off on Solitary Protest Recap || ||

I originaly posted this to the DC IMC

a quick recap of my morning protest

At the corner of E st & 20th, as cars came out of the E St tunnel, there is a stop light. As cars waited for the green light, they were greeted by me decked out in a neon orange jumpsuit with a large sign saying “NO BLOOD FOR OIL.” Thousands of cars passed by me from 7am to 9:30am, many honked their horns, some shook their head in disbelief, some said “Thank You,” one lady gave me a granola bar, and most just gave a good thumbs up. It was a solitary protest, but a good one nonetheless. The cliche, “the power of one” holds true and dear to me. Today is the International Day of Action, and I think I was able to turn a few heads and non-violently, silently, and boldly give my message to thousands.

Photograph of my television showing CNN's coverage of the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster

On the birthday of my first love after we broke up… The day before my mother’s 50th birthday… The first Israeli in space burned up while reentering the earth near Palestine, Texas. There is only one God, right? I am blessed to be alive.


I still remember that morning….4/24/05
