Singing from the same sheet of music

During a long weekend in Madison, Wisconsin - actually Wednesday through Sunday - Victoria and I attended the National Veterans For Peace Conference, and a highlight for many of us was participating in a noon Capitol Rotunda sing-a-long each day. It was exhilarating standing up for the First and Fourth Amendments, risking arrest while defending free speech along with other folks from all over the country. In case you’re wondering, during our session several people were arrested and fined over $200 bail each. Victoria and I lucked out. A side note – Veterans For Peace representatives organized a human mic on the Capitol grounds and raised more than enough bail money to cover everyone hauled in for peace and justice.
