The march can make a difference!

I didn't march last Saturday because I was taking a job candidate to lunch.
We ate in the market at a restaurant that is along the march route.  My back
was to the window, but suddenly someone at a different table cried out,
"Look, a peace march!"  Everyone looked, quite a few leaving their chairs
for a better view, and it was really impressive with all the signs and a
good turnout.  As the march passed out of sight, conversation at every table
around me turned to the topic of the war. It was really exciting for me to
see the big impact of the march from inside the restaurant.  Let's keep
reminding people that this war is immoral and illegal.
