It made me smile this morning, to see the video of a protest organized by UCSD students. They aren't all apathetic,comfortable kids. It wasn't all college kids, and it wasn't all liberals..it was people uniting for a common cause. You can say what you want, rhetoric is just words..actions speak louder. It felt good to see my hometown speak out against the war on a busy street corner in a red county. Wonder if the Shrubs boyz were there, infiltrating this group of peace-niks..wasting our tax dollars spying on people who's only goal is to end the occupation of Iraq. Sure, some of them didn't seem to have a clear idea of what to say, but their hearts and heads were in the right place. The Shrub's supporters can sling their barbs, they can attack our actions..but they can not kill our spirit. We still have the right to NOT be silent like one of the signs said.
