A wonderful night

Bren talked me into facing my gripping phobia of crowds and general hatred of campus tonight to go to the Obama rally.  VERY glad I went.  It was a ton of walking and hours of standing, but we got to see him!!  Sure we were a hundred or so yards away, but we could see him.

Above everything else it was wonderful to be in a crowd of such hopeful people all filled with this great energy.  No matter what your political beliefs, that is an amazing experience.

Having a mixed group of readers I won't go into politics.  But needless to say it's a night I won't soon forget.

Best yet, as we were walking back to our car, we got stopped on High St by a state Highway Patrolman who would not let us cross the street.  He made us go stand in the grass with about 20 or so other people and just stand there.  I realized the street was closed off, and very desolate at that moment.  Then I realized the motorcade would be coming through!!  And sure enough 2 minutes later, he went by and waved at us!!

It's a dark shot, but there ya go!  :)

  1. You lucky, lucky Bohemiangrrl!!!! I would have been there but had a prior commitment to sing for a ceremony at church - and I would have been overcoming a similar hatred of crowds and anything OSU. :-)
