I was proud to rally with those honoring and remembering the Women’s March today in Brookings. My little red truck with small American flags waving above its windows, political signs all ‘round, cheering for the candidates and causes I hold dear and am supporting in this election, parked just beside a larger truck with signage supporting the republican that occupies the oval office (when he’s at work...not very often and not for much longer, I was thinking). Across from me was the Curry County Democrats office and the Women’s March Rally was already underway.
I loaded up with a large Calla Felicity for State Representative sign on a long wooden stake, and a good-sized American flag held so the flag waved above the sign. Together they towered above me, easily my height again. All ten feet of us crossed at the light-blinking crosswalk in front of the Redwood Theater, sort of like the painting of Washington crossing the Delaware, striding across gaily while vehicles obediently stopped for the flashing crosswalk symbol. I greeted people at the rally as I walked up the sidewalk to the Dems’ office. There were friends and allies and folks I hadn’t met before. We were uplifted, bouyed by good fellowship and positivity.
I waved and cheered with the Women’s March Rally. My ears were nearly blown out by one sixteen wheeler that laid on its horn right in front of us, without any let up, for about 30 seconds or so that felt like an eternity. And there was the car farting thick black smoke that came around every 20 minutes or so. Otherwise, it was a friendly horn-honking celebration of First Amendment Rights, a tradition in many small towns across America, carried out for many election cycles in my lifetime (without the growing rancor and ill will that we have experienced from the Republicans since 2012).
There are many, many involved, hard working, caring people in House District One who aren’t Democrats, and who aren’t Republicans. They outnumber both parties. Some of them were driving by with friendly honks for the candidates and ideas I was supporting in the Rally, and some were friendly honks for others across the street. I hope none were among the rudely loud airhorn-style BLAAAAATTTTTS from the Republicans driving past on their way from the 2nd Amendment rally they held in Harbor, to the rally they were planning in Gold Beach. Since no one I know speaks “horn” the sounds they make are simply either polite and fun, or overbearing and hurtful to the ears. Our Republican counterparts in the large truck parked beside mine agreed, when I mentioned I hoped we’d go back to the traditional – and fun – small town, polite campaign honking.
Next, a grand circle down one side of the block and up the other, flag waving and sign waving as I went. There were a tense few seconds in the un-lighted crosswalk at the apex of my perambulation, as several drivers appeared to slow for me as I stepped hesitantly into it, then they read my sign, and they they came on through the crosswalk. Rude. My buddy veteran - in a walker - stepped off the opposite curb to come to my rescue. I was glad when the cars finally stopped to let me across. Sure did make me want to have every crosswalk in town lit with warning lights!
There was bravery aplenty among allies along the sidewalks. Some of us have already voted. Some of us will join the Parade to the Ballot Box on Monday Oct 19th at 4 at the Rite Aid parking lot in Harbor, or at 4:30 in the parking lot across from the Dems’ office.
We represent the best of the democratic process, the edge of the visible spectrum of light that shines on the republic when its citizens care enough to show up and speak up in public spaces, despite discomfort and oppositional viewpoints.
Signs now available for cost (4.00) or free to people who've had signs stolen. Let's stay STRONG AND VISIBLE! Monday at 4 at Rite Aid parking lot the Parades to the Ballot Box start (for cars). Walkers will gather at the lot accross from from 619 Chetco. Bring hot chocolate, cookies, etc to share. ... See MoreSee Less
