My first protest

I am glad I went to the Mike Brown protest. It started out as just a rally in Dudley Square, but then the entire group marched through the city. There were people of many different races there. Almost everyone was under thirty. Fourteen hundred people filled the streets of Boston, shutting it down to traffic. That part was very powerful to me; the feeling was hard to describe. Cars could not pass, and people could not escape the chanting. We ended up at the jail at South Bay, held back from the highway by a police barricade. I tweeted a lot of it, but forgot to when I was on my way home because I was tired. No, I was not arrested.

I felt bad having to leave before it was totally over. I had to leave in time to let my dad into my house, as he was coming in for Thanksgiving. As he put it, after the year he's had, he's "suffered enough" and I didn't want to get in any trouble that would wreck his holiday. But it was a remarkable experience, and I'm glad I went.
