NOTE TO SELF; KNOW PROTEST CHANTS

Last weekend’s March on Washington was historical on so many levels for Americans and citizens who participated around the globe.  For this islander, imagine the simple culture shock of leaving Hilton Head in the off-season (pop. 39,000), for our bustling nation’s Capitol city (pop. 672,228).  Even if subtracting a couple hundred thousand from D.C.’s resident population (to account for those who skedaddled during the January 20, 2017 weekend), one still must add back an estimated 800,000 protesters from all over the country – all of who were on the streets in one six-hour period – the wave of humanity working towards a common purpose was unimaginably, awe-inspiring.

The Holmes family was dreading returning to their home in Bluffton from the evacuation because two trees had come down on it during the hurricane. A team of volunteers whom they did not know showed up, asked if they could remove the trees, and freed their house so they could go home safely. They were immensely grateful for the help and it inspired them to help others.
