My two cents: The picket was great fun although there was a very serious side to it of course. No one forgot why we were there, I am glad to say. There were moments of great sadness especially seeing Lisa and Noah's family there. I was incredibly moved by these people. They are so strong and yet so wounded. I cry just thinking of them and thank *God* (or whatever) that my loved one is safe and healthy. It could just as easily have been him (or me, or you, or anyone) who died for the Co$. We all have a lot to be thankful for. That being said, each and every speaker was candid and their statements were so *real*, so heartfelt and moving. They were and are true experts. The comraderie was mind boggling to see. All these people from all over the country and the world here in unity, differences aside and cooperating. If there is such a thing as an OT, I met a bunch of them. They were resourceful, creative and full of vitality. Unstoppable, and the Co$ knows it now. My hat is off to every one of them as well as those who stayed at home to support all of us who were able to be there. I spoke with a few Scientologists and two of them responded to me. I even bought a sandwich for one young kid (about 16 0r 17) who stood in one spot at the Fort Homicide the whole day. He did not take it but it was there for him. My thinking was, "If that was my kid, I'd want someone to give him a bit to eat". They are all so skinny and pale. In summation, the experience was like no other and I'll be back next year. Oh, BTW, Scientology, I love Florida and will no doubt be moving there in the not to distant future. You will have to deal with me on a regular basis. I will be like a mosquito that will not die. Be prepared cuz I am a pain in the ass as the Seattle Org will no doubt verify. Love to All
