Over at Shutter Sisters there’s a post today about being “interconnected” and a comment about Nov 4, 2008 in Grant Park, Chicago. It was an amazing night of interconnectedness with those celebrating the election results. A peaceful gathering of thousands of people.
I attended the follow-up event a couple of months later (the Presidential Inauguration on January 20, 2009) in Washington, DC where over 500,000 people gathered in celebration without one arrest. Another moment where interconnectedness.
This is my view of thousands of my closest friends that morning. It was (very) cold, we stood for four hours barely moving and it was very peaceful. We even started singing songs together to pass the time. Amazing.
