Good God...you just brought back a memory...I was in DC on business early 98??? and went to the WH...I had just discovered FR Thanksgiving 1997 and I saw this guy holding a sign in front of the WH...it was Joe V...I was living in FL and doing solo protesting on my own down there, so he was a kindred spirit...my God, that only seems like a few years ago.
His (MCM’s) post titled, “I was there, Where were you.” was one of the greatest acts of FReeper motivation ever concieved. Mr ConfettiMan, the good Dr, and the entire DC chapter have been our examples of activism in the field inspiring all of us at our local levels and for trips to focus areas such as the Federal District, DOD hospitals, political events and elsewhere.
While FR is Jim’s gift to us, these DC Chapter folks have just as much been our greatest inspiration for activism.
