No on Prop 8!!!

This evening Holly and I went to the corner of Treat and Oak Grove to participate in a No for Prop 8 rally. For the most part it was very peaceful as we took all 4 corners of the intersections and we received a lot of support and honks with also a few thumbs down who opposed our views. It wasn't until the end of our protest when the Yes for Prop 8 people decided to walk down to our area to take over (probably because they didnt get their cheers and honks and wanted to get it from our end) and things started to get a bit crazy. There was this psycho old man who was like an evangelical prophet and saying a lot of negative things to which some of the Yes for 8 people said that he didnt belong to them. He had this bullhorn and kept yelling out really obscene things to which the police came and help seperate the two crowds.

All in all it was a wonderful experience. I have never been so passionate about such a topic as I feel this is our generations Civil Rights issue.
