I can't really afford the trip, but I may do it anyway. I feel that strongly about what they're doing.
And now a word about attending the event.
There are two petitions now up online. One for people to sign only if they WILL be at the Gathering of Eagles on March 17th:I'm going to talk to my daughters about this tonight. It'll be a long trip, with very little sleep, but I want them to have the chance to go. I want them to see both sides of a protest and understand that the right to assemble is a fundamental right of all citizens. I doubt they'll go, but I'm really hoping my older daughter goes with me. Well, I wish they both would, but the younger one has a bladder the size of a shot glass, and that gets really annoying after the 500th trip to the porta-john.
The second petition is for those who will be with us in spirit:
This will be very helpful in giving us some idea of how many Eagles will be in attendance on the 17th and how many will be supporting us from home.
If you plan to be there, sign in. Those who just can’t attend but stand with us in spirit are asked to sign the second petition.
We need ALL BLOGGERS and WEBMASTERS to get this word out!!
If you encounter problems signing, please persevere and try again later. We need your count!
I'll keep you updated, but if I go you can expect to see many pictures.
