Yesterday's March

At over one-hundred thousand people, it took nearly three hours for the people I was with to get onto the street. A police officer was trying to tell people to turn back (a slightly dickish move, given that we were right there and marched less than twenty minutes after that, but I could understand his frustration). The wait was as grueling as the moment to walk was gratifying and cathartic, purging months of frustration, if only for a few moments.
