Witnessing at Tent City Jail


This is the end of GA for me, as I'm headed home on a ridiculously early flight this morning.  My flight is so early that I considered skipping the witnessing event that we were bussed out to the Tent City Detention Center last night for - I considered go to bed early so that I would get more than 3 hours of sleep.


But I didn't skip it, and I'm very glad I attended.  It was the first such protest that I've ever been to, and I was deeply moved by the overall experience.  Standing in a huge crowd of yellow T shirts, singing and cheering and waving our (electric) candles, I was deeply humbled.  This issue has not grabbed my heart until yesterday, but now I get it.  I finally get it.

  1. What an amazing experience. I am glad you got to go. It even made the St. Louis paper! You all made an impact.
