Infrequent commenter caphilldcne was at yesterday’s protests in the nation’s capital. He sends along some pictures and a bit of description.
We marched from the Senate office buildings on Capitol Hill passed the White House. I headed back after 17th Street. The photo of the Washington monument shows how deserted the mall is. A lot of the people at the base of the monument are national guard. It’s a sea of people. Tens of thousands. I was pretty shocked by how big it was. This is just one of many groups marching. People were polite, well-mannered, friendly and appalled by what is happening to this country. I’m glad to stand with these incredible marchers.
