At times there was a carnival atmosphere like a Saturday Night Live skit but I noticed everyone smiling. Sometimes humor is the best way to cope or to open a discussion when we have polarized feelings on issues. Everyone may or may not have had the same reason for being there but everyone seemed cheerful to be a part of it.

There were chants but the one that meant the most to me was, “This is what democracy looks like.” I love this country. Trump is our/my president. However, I don’t want to live in a place that is homogeneous and where everyone thinks alike. We have always had protest from the Boston Tea Party in 1773, to the Civil Rights and War demonstrations in the 1960's. This is the American freedom to express, to organize and to speak out about what matters to you.

..If God had given you leadership ability, take the responsibly seriously. And if you have a gift of showing kindness to others, do it gladly. Do not just pretend that you love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of the good. Love each with genuine affection and take delight in honoring each other. (12 Romans 8:10)
