Goodbye Detroit!

Spent a few hours hanging out in Kalamazoo before Tammy Hibner arrived . Didn’t get to see old friend Chris maybe next time through. It was peaceful where I was  able (with Tammy’s help -massage therapist) get comfortable again and drove west of Chicago before stopping for the night. Then it was off to Des Moines.

Passed…..Iowa & Nebraska and saw corn…lots of corn. Passed a wicked innovation center. (more…)

Kalamazoo Day Days 3 to 5

Day 5-Closing
It was a very emotional day as we said our goodbyes to all our friends, who came from across the Country to share at the 2nd National Gathering in Kalamazoo. Many of us found this week (Kalamazoo Peace Center & Bronson Park) absolute quality, as far as education sessions, history providing and sharing. The Wesley Foundation/Peace Center did a fantastic job hosting the many people there. Having the many breakout rooms (a kitchen and presentation rooms)all in one space was so convenient. Turtle Soup Kitchen (Rick & Sarah) was awesome with providing food for the masses and hauling water, etc. (more…)

NatGat2 1st day + Parade.

Many cities and States are represented here today and while the crowd isn’t humongous, we do have some great minds and are planning strategic events and organizing which makes me happy. It would be nice to leave here with a future game plan. It was a great day and more people showing up all the time. Heard from Arkansas and they’re sending a representative. Some people could only make it for the weekend. Captain Ray Lewis arrived today and marched with the crowds through the streets.

Janet was interviewed by al Jazeera this morning for a spot on the 5pm news.  Thank you Tim, Bisi and Tom for taking the time to drive out to Kalamazoo (from Detroit) to cover this event. (more…)

Occupy Kalamazoo, MI

We are in Michigan with occupy kalamazoo, a great bunch of people the city, not so nice. They had a parade today which is sort of community/arts parade. It seems like it was ok to bring in occupy theroads until they actually saw it. Excuse, its to big, you didn’t give us enough notice to participate. They went as far as to block off two streets that would have given us access at the back of the parade. Now going back to the size, their was a truck in the parade bigger then the V plus other floats that with the float being pulled made them bigger then the V also. (more…)
