All in Demonstrations

Pathetic

Today, I attended Chicago’s student led march to combat climate change. The demonstrators were enthusiastic and vocal, but the turnout was pathetic when compared to other demonstrations throughout the world. To read my take on the march and for my photographs, click on the image or the link.

Chicago is shrouded in dense ground fog.  It is difficult to identify buildings just two or three blocks down the avenues.  Fog obscures, but it also amplifies colors, which brings a certain clarity to the urban landscape.  It creates a mysterious whirl in the air.

So when the Lord blesses us with a day or two of January temperatures in the forties, we hit the streets.  Today, it was Grant Park and the Women's March.  Some 300,000 people showed up, breaking last year's attendance number by about 50,000 people.
