Sabina was a bit nervous to go because she is afraid of the Peace Marches that we have been on in the past. The group we are with is always quite peaceful - it is just the people who drive by and yell nasty and hateful words that scare her. This time though, the kids had their own area in the park. There was no marching this time either, just a place for people to gather together and know that there are others out there like us who think the same. There were a lot of old familiar faces that showed up but this time there were a lot of new faces too. Two Sacramento based tv channels came to cover the event as well as the Modesto Bee.
Sabina ended up having a really good time. She got to help set up the Kid Corner and composed some nice poetry (by herself) and drew some posters. She also loved helping the little kids out. She said that it gave her practice for when she is older and wants to babysit!
If you have the time, go and check out Sabi's website. She wrote about the gathering and posted her poem there. Here is her link: Bina's Blog
