Westboro, welcome to Garfield

You’ve gotta love a well-organized event. This morning, hundreds of Garfield students turned out to counter-protest the nuts from Westboro Baptist Church. Counter-protest might actually be the wrong term: the mixed crowd of Bulldogs and community members outweighed the handful of Westboro-ites so heavily that on multiple occasions passers-by wondered what the celebration was for, not even noticing the original protest across the street.

A fantastic way to start the week, and yet another example of good, smart young people taking charge! Checkiddout:

Purple and white.

A small, retreating group. What's odd is that as soon as they reached the corner they all started running. Hm.

    Garfield making me proud yet again. I’m wearing green today for Iran, but tomorrow’s all about the purple and white. True dogs in the house!
