Signs of the Times
January 22, 2017
I decided to follow my own advice, and be Local and Vocal, went to our local anti-Trump demo. One of the first things you notice is the fun, good spirits, and sometimes, wisdom of the signs people are bringing out.
Saturday’s demonstrations were impressive, but they will only be a sea change if those of us who care about the future of life on the planet begin a strong follow up in coming days.
Significant that so many gatherings occurred outside of the major urban centers.
In my own small, mostly republican town, hundreds turned out (rare, trust me) at a major thoroughfare – and were greeted with a surprising number of excited and approving honks, thumbs up, and fist pumps from passing motorists.
