35 : nearing the end
Aren't the panty posters cute?
At this point, it's about 2:30 PM. We've all just made it through the gauntlet of pro-lifers, and there are people in neighboring buildings holding up banners. The crowd has also widened so it's covering the whole intersection (of 7th and something, near the Archives).
Most of us aren't really clear where the March ends, so we don't know we're almost done. Our feet hurt, our voices are hoarse, and a lot of us need to pee. But we pick up energy here, with the feeling of support and excitement of all these other people.
