FaHrenheit 9/11 <-- spelling correction

went with mirandathejoy to a war protest in Morristown.
It was organized by People's Organization for Progress.
It was fun!
A lot of people honked and waved in support. A few yelled things at us. One guy called us "gringo bastards," I think.
Then we went to an Indian restaurant with our signs.
Oh, and Miranda's dad protested with us. He's a better protester than we. He knew the songs better than I...

my dad is an old hat at protesting

i liked the guy who was all meek & upset about saying, "I'm sorry, I just don't agree with you." I wish all the people who disagreed were like that. I'd respect them more.

Yeah, seriously...
You can't have serious discussion if your opponents just shout "gringo bastards" at you.

So true.
But also, maybe that was all he could say in English and us gringos wouldn't have been able to talk with him anyway.

Going to protests is really good in case there is a draft (everyone I know has a different opinion on how likely this is). Have people take photos of you protesting to document it! Some people purposely take their kids to peace rallies from a very early age, and photograph them there for future C.O. files.

I thought so. That's a good idea.
They wouldn't take pictures of me I think because I was holding a sign that said "cat-lovers for peace" and they seemed to think that was odd.
I want to start my own pacifist organization at Grinnell when I get back (that can't hurt either) because Miranda pointed out that Cat-Lovers Against War can be made into the acronym C.L.A.W. How awesome is that?!

dang. we should've taken pictures. It was a cool protest anyway. woulda been worth it. ah, well.

Thanks for the comment. That's important info.

That's a great acronym!! Wow! That's really awesome. You should do it. If you actually get C.L.A.W. going, I'll donate some money to it -- another thing to put on my C.O. record!
