Monday, December 19th 2016

Today was my first time ever giving a speech at a political rally!

“I’d rather stand up and fight for what I believe in              than stay home and accept what I don’t.”


Here I am trying to work up my nerve [@min. 2:55], and then going for it [from 3:45-6:45].

2016-12-19 DECEMBER19.US MASS STATEHOUSE RALLY TO STOP TRUMP [12:34]:

(Thanks to my friend Zareh and to Facebook Live for the footage.)

What a treat to see my friend Zareh today!

Vigilance every day is the price of freedom.

    Jenny great spirit and a good job. If your dedication to sound government had taken place in Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania before the election it would have been NO TRUMP. You should consider running for the city council. love

    God Help America, indeed. Daily vigilance is the price of freedom.

    Thank you, Jenny. It’s people like you who will save this country from destruction.
