Wish I could be in the City
for this one.
Ron and I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge for
a woman's right to choose
in 2004--that terrible year--
when Republican convention
left its dirty mark.
Began blogging two years later. I need to find my own photos, write about the two extremes of the very hot day. Exhilarating and intimidating with police photographing from posts above marchers.
Found reflections from others. From a Planned Parenthood site, an older woman, out-of-towner, uncomfortable with visiting notorious NYC-- nervously rides the subway to Brooklyn--and finds community among the 25,000 who join her on the Bridge.
Matthew Weinstein, native Brooklyn guy and blogger, a choice supporter, writes about the dark mood in the City, took many photos. He ended up eating dim-sum in Chinatown--just like Ron and me.
