Today is the day. We're all here, and we're leaving to join the march.

From my apartment windows I have seen a steady stream of people of people walking down the sidewalks and streets with signs, parking their bikes and cars and heading for the Metro station.

I can't put my finger on why, but I am afraid. I hope nothing happens.

I mean, that's not true. I want things to happen. What I should say is that I hope no one is physically injured. There are a lot of skinheads still hanging around from yesterday, and I hope nobody takes advantage of the huge crowds gathering today to do something horrific. I hope that good things grow out of this outpouring of positive energy, and that the reactionary backlash against this demonstration is not politically devastating for all of us.

Hope is such a precarious thing.
