Sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims’ pride,
From every mountainside let freedom ring!img_7242img_9306My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free, thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills, like that above.img_9276img_9268Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees sweet freedom’s song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.img_9251img_9267img_9258

"Trump is the second coming of Jesus!" said he.

“Trump is the second coming of Jesus!” he repeated.

Author of liberty, to thee we sing;
Long may our land be bright
With freedom’s holy light;
Protect us by thy might, great God, our King.”

“Hold your head high, don’t let hopelessness and injustice weigh it down, peace my friend,” Margaret said to a passerby. He and his son looked at her oddly to which she shrugged. Margaret has been coming to Washington, D.C. since 2005, when she was first sent by Ralph Nader. Once she arrived she took her place in supporting and continuing the longest peaceful protest. Started in 1981 by Concepcion Picciotto and William Thomas as a vigil against nuclear warfare, the white tent represents the longest, continual peaceful protest. Today it is illegal to sleep overnight in Lafayette Square. However, because the tent was set up before that law was established, the vigil has been grandfathered in. So, as long as someone is in the tent, the tent can remain. img_9287 “Fight for the things that you care about. But do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”
