☮ Demonstrating for Peace in Lincoln ☮
About 200 people came out this morning for a peace march and demonstration in the mall by the state capitol. It was a tough sell today, in part, because the Husker football team is playing #1 ranked USC tonight. Thousands of people have poured into our city to be a part of the "game of the week." Will Ferrell, Keanu Reeves, Rush Limbaugh and Larry the Cable Guy are all in the house to see the game. As we walked through the city with our banners and signs, chanting slogans of peace and justice, one football fan, decked out in red from head to toe shouted, "This is a football day. Nobody cares about that stuff." Sadly, that about sums it up...
