Today before the rally on the mall we grabbed some sandwiches at a nearby cafe and headed out.
We parked ourselves near the speakers stand, but also near to a flag from my native place.
It was great to hear Pres. Trump address the crowd. It was a good, long speech, too. Not just a quick greeting.
During the President’s talk, I noticed two American Bald Eagles circling, a fact that made my friends from Rome rather pleased. After all, the appearance of eagles at a public event of this magnitude.
Alas, it was hard to get them through the branches.
A sign along the march.
The crowds for the march are always vast. Today, however, I had the feeling that they were beyond what I had seen before.
My friend Fr. Pasley!
This was different.
So that was the march. It was a wonderful, recharging experience.
Later I walked to Old St. Mary’s for the Mass, but I made sure to walk through the Law Enforcement Memorial.
Old St. Mary’s. JAMMED.
I saw so many wonderful people after the Mass. Many old friends said hello and quite a few readers.
Then… off to supper. Friday, so no flesh.
Afterwards… which is mine? Hint, all three contain Pappy Van Winkle.
A wonderful day.
Tomorrow, home again.
