    To all of you who have been so supportive and sent me your names to carry (we did) and your messages of encouragement and acceptance, thank you. I will describe today's events in more detail a bit later, and hopefully get some photos posted but for now I'll give you the words to the song that opened the rally.

    Becca, you who have shared so much with me, know exactly what it meant to have this song played from the steps of City Hall, surrounded by supporters and seeing Roman Collars in the support.

    If you are not familiar with this song, you can easily google it and find it on youtube. I'll leave it to you if you'd like to hear it.

    I look into the window of my mind
    Reflections of the fears I know I've left behind
    I step out of the ordinary
    I can feel my soul ascending
    I am on my way
    Can't stop me now
    And you can do the same
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    It's never too late to try
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    You could be so many people
    If you make that break for freedom
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    Still so many answers I don't know
    Realise that to question is how we grow
    So I step out of the ordinary
    I can feel my soul ascending
    I am on my way
    Can't stop me now
    And you can do the same
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    It's never too late to try
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    You could be so many people
    If you make that break for freedom
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    We need a change
    Do it today
    I can feel my spirit rising
    We need a change
    So do it today
    'Cause I can see a clear horizon
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    So what have you done today to make you feel proud?
    'Cause you could be so many people
    If you make that break for freedom
    So what have you done today to make you feel proud?
    What have you done today to make you feel proud?
    What have you done today
    You could be so many people?
    Just make that break for freedom
    So what have you done today to make you feel proud?

    When the opening bars of the music started, I had my back to the "stage" (the top steps of City Hall). We were standing on the steps leading to the top. What a reaction from the crowd!

    Imagine dancing (yepper, quite Babylonian :D ) and laughter, and arms flung high in the air, and singing along. Incredible. What a way to start a rally!!!

    WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TODAY TO MAKE YOU FEEEEEEL PROUD? Glorious!! :D
