I'm A Rally Girl!

In a little bit, G and I will be headed out to the Austin Rally To Restore Sanity. It's going to be great rally weather and I'm hoping this will be a really fun event that makes an important statement.

Everybody there will have a different idea of what that statement is, but the overall idea is that the insane frothing-at-the-mouth fringe folks from all sides are not what America is about. Dialogue, debate and discussion is what we need, not diatribe and divisiveness. I see this rally as a way for concerned citizens from all parties to say to the country and to the world that it's time to stop yelling at each other. It's time to look at what the issues really are, and to listen to the other side when discussing ideas and solutions to the problems that we share.
