Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

      Today, Monday, August 25th would have been Mike Brown's first day of college. Instead, it is the day of his funeral. We are joining the #handsupwalkout campaign tribute to Mike Brown and a movement against police brutality on our University of Utah campus. Please join us.
Where: Library Plaza - East side of the Library 12:45 PM: Poster Making 1:00 PM: Introduction
         *Following the introduction we will read names of peoples who have been targets of such violence in the past, and open the movement to public forum.
        Share this message on all your social media sites! Ready, set go! Several hours remain to act together and even if it is only a handful of us, it is still how a movement is made!

        And in Cleveland  --   And in Palestine  --   And in the wide world this day is being held by each of us as a tribute to respectfully recall all people who have cried "Hands Up  -- Don't Shoot"

        Some one "tweeted" this:   surprised I haven't heard of a #HandsUpWalkOut at @cunylawschool today. :(

        Participate in this National Walk Out in tribute to and with Ferguson and every other community that has suffered people to police violence, including the Dayton, Chicago, Seattle, Miami, Albuquerque, and so many more communities we have lost count.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).
