First, I want to thank absolutely everyone who attended in some blistering cold weather.   Some of our plans worked like clockwork, others, due to the weather, we had to postpone.   That said, I wanted to jot together a quick diary today about the fact that Kansans gathered today in the state Capital to remind each other that this is a fight now over - and a fight worth having for the rights of our fellow citizens.

I've enclosed two videos here, and I encourage those who were there to post their pictures in the comments, I will add them to the diary as we go.   I'm just finishing up some interviews with elected officials who were present, and I will try to edit them together for an article tomorrow, but I am thankful for their gift of time and resources in helping us get access to elected officials, media and those also interested in changing our state.

I have to commend everyone who came out, who shared their thoughts.  

I find Rabbi Levin's comments (beginning at 22:00 in the first and continuing in the second) to be very effective.

I'll update as people add pictures.   Much more information tomorrow!

6:37 PM PT:

Photos of us getting a quick moment with Rabbi Levin post his speech, who took time to talk to us and get some information to us.    We thank him for his time!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
