Canaan learned an important lesson that day--we can speak the truth in love (we didn't want to pass out any mean pamphlets or write anything crazy on our sign or shout obscenities to the government). It's also important to follow your words with actions (Canaan's heard her mom and dad talk about it enough...it's time to do something!)
The night ended on a great note: during the long trek back to the car, a group of "enthusiastic" women (after a quick stop at the bar) asked us if they could use our signs for the rally. Of course, we were happy to let our signs live on at the protest. So here's the final picture documenting Canaan's first rally: the 60something year old ladies off to proudly wave the sign, "When I grow up, I want to be debt free!"
