912dc, March on Washington – DC cop says we are polite

IMG_2644

The words of one policeperson who was charged with standing along the parade route rings in my ears.  I stood near him taking photos of the marchers. People would come up to him and ask questions, make comments and generally just engage him. He couldn’t or wouldn’t say much of anything in response. He did say though, to a patriot that asked him something about the march. He said, “It sure is the most polite group of protesters I have ever seen.”

You would think that human nature, having 2 million people in one place, would cause some folks to flip out, act out and otherwise demonstrate some sort of rudeness. I did not see any of that.  People were sharing extra water, food, flags and whatever the stranger that they just met may need or want. We brought extra flags and I handed them to anyone who wanted one. I saw a couple walking without a sign or a flag and I offered him two flags. He began to reach in his back pocket, to pay. I guess he had been around a few hawkers and thought I was selling flags. I waved him off and told him, no, take these, there is no charge. He was elated and shocked and gladly took the flags, handing one to his partner. Immediately their arms went up in the air, marching, waving flags.

Through the miracle of cell phones we were able to hook up with Logistics Monster, Dr. Kate and The Dame Truth. What a great group of women they are. I so admire their blogs and postings, knocking it out of the park, just sayin it like it is. We walked the march together for a short while before getting separated. The crowd was thick and moving at a decent clip. If you stopped to take a photo there was a good chance that anyone you may have been walking with would be lost in the crowd. We did manage to run across each other late in the day where under the shade of a large tree we shared our feelings regarding the event. Their blogs are here:  http://logisticsmonster.com/, http://drkatesview.wordpress.com/, http://thedametruth.net/wordpress/.

There are just so many photos of the event. I will keep posting some shots this week.  Courage to See has her photos online HERE with more to come.

Here are some photos with more to come in another post plus some videos will be added.

    Great photos; and it was amazing how clean the rally site and streets were after the rally. The streets were lined with Patriots calling out to be heard. These patriots wanted elected officials, who have taken an oath of office to defend the Constitution, to know people are watching them.
