Washington D.C :: Sept. 24th 2005

fc in D.C.
Cindy - JesseMy wife and I endured to maintain a presence in Washington D.C. on Saturday, September 24th 2005.   It started as an experience in handicapped access.   Due to a health problem I am unstable on my feet for anything but short term activity.   Being able to manuver the chair when I really have to is an option that truely handicapped people do not have the luxury of.   I was one of many on the Metro who were navigating by themselves and several with friends of families.   Our journey began with a trip in a shuttle from the hotel acompanied to our joy was a middle aged couple from Tuscon Arizona.   We had managed to load the chair and were just about to leave when an elderly looking gray haired man with a long salt-pepper beard came out accompanied by his wife.   A beautiful start to a beautiful day.   We had plenty of time to get to know each other due to having an hour to hour and a quarter delay because one of the two lines into DC from Reagan National Airport was down.   Upon finally getting on the Metro (a first for me or my wife) there were three ladies dressed in solid pink.   Being packed in like sardines I was positioned face to face with one and she smiled when she saw my custom airbrushed t-shirt that said: "END The WAR IN IRAQ" overlayed on an American Flag.   I kinda boldly asked her if she was with "Code Pink" and she said that she was.   We were acompanied by a whole group of helpful people for the trek down from the National Archives to Constitutional Ave and onward to the Washington Monument.

The Washington Monument behind where we camped...
She caught the fat boy talkin' to somebody.
The sign from behind. Once the crowd got so thick about 12 noon I ended up rolling the chair myself until I got to the perimeter and we kinda homesteaded the spot. This was where the beginning of the March was supposed to start. As you can tell from the shot below, the crowd stretched out of sight down Constitution Ave. People passed in front of us for hours...
ww2 vet
The WWII Vet who sat beside us most of the day. He like everyone else kinda wandered around but eventually landed close to us. One of the Indy News Ladies did an interview with him. She took a few seconds of video of my sign.

These folks had a page in their line for all the war dead. It was a very long line... sigh...

The content of the post should be about what you want for the world, whatever that may be. The purpose is not to make a particular political statement, but simply to make a noise. If 30,000 weblogs all post the same unusual word, it WILL be heard.
