Featuring cherita!

Happy Haiga Day!

Yesterday I attended an impeachment rally on the Boston Common. The size of the crowd was only a few hundred, which I found rather disappointing, as did another attendee I overheard saying, "I was hoping there'd be a million people."

The three Women's marches had a festive feel, this march was different. The frustration and the anger were obvious. As was the sheer exhaustion.

Anger was not just directed at the mango menace, but at those in Congress who have yet to make up their minds on the impeachment issue. As if there was any question about high crimes and misdemeanors!

June 2019 rally

the crowd is disquieted
and the volume grows with
cries of "lock him up"

existential threat trumps
Bostonian propriety

Here are a few more photos from the rally:

Back in late February, I posted a quote from Elijah Cummings on this blog's left sidebar. It's still there, and it's still relevant, but in case you missed it, here it is once more:

When we’re dancing with the angels, the question we’ll be asked: In 2019, what did we do to make sure we kept our democracy intact? Did we stand on the sidelines and say nothing?
