1.5 to 2.5 Million People

The "Angry Mob" of people who are willing to stand up for what they believe in. This was about 1/2 up Pennsylvania Ave looking back at the Freedom Plaza!

Me and Mom at Freedom Plaza getting ready for the march! We met some really nice people from all over the country

We sat next to some people who had a TV with CNN reporting only 1000 people there. That was a huge lie, by the end of the march/rally ABC was estimating 1.5-2 Million people. They stretch from the capital building to the Washington Monument, and back down Pennsylvania Ave to about 12th Street, it was solid people!
The beautiful flags flying at the Post Office, I thought they were beautiful!

Mom and I then decided to walk down to the White House for a picture, while walking to the vantage point, the police started clearing the area stating that someone was coming in or going out! It was the president, this was his helicopter coming in for landing past the Washington Monument.

We have had a great experience today. I really felt passionate about what I was here to do and I love the fact that so many people from the states in our Nation showed up to show support for Fiscal responsibility and Constitutional Rights! We are having a blast. I will have to post some pictures of the great food that we have been eating. Love you all so much!
