Anti-War Rally

It has been a weekend to remember! I found myself in Washington DC for the anti-war rally on Saturday morning. It was an absolutely electrifying experience to march with an estimated 300,000 people. Check it out on the pics page.(more on the way...) After the rally Sculls and I headed to RFK Stadium for the METS/Nationals game, during which David Wright hit a grand slam in the first inning! It was awesome to see so many MET fans in our nation's capital. As a history teacher I could not pass up the opportunity to visit the plantation of our nation's first president, George Washington (did I have to clarify who that was?). And so this morning (Sunday) we drove over to Virginia and toured his Mt. Vernon plantation...some of those pics will be up shortly as well. Now, I know what you're thinking: "Julie's weekend could not possibly get any better!" WRONG! Upon returning from DC we headed on down to Gibney's to catch 2 sets of my favorite folk singer, Fred Gillen Jr. He rocked, of course...Check him out next Friday night at the Peekskill Coffeehouse, Sep. 30 @ 8pm. OK, that's all for now folks. Things are great, music is great, and the rally was one of the best experiences of my life. Fight for what you believe in.
