Yesterday there were at least a dozen anti-abortion demonstrators on the UWM campus standing beside extremely large – larger than life sized – color posters of dismembered fetuses. Many of them were young mothers who brought their young children along to the event. It was disturbing to many to see these kids playing on the plaza in front of such enormous, bloody, and graphic images just as if it were any other day in the park.
These chalk messages were still on the plaza this morning when I walked in to work. You can pretty much tell which ones were done by children of the demonstrators. University students obviously added their own remarks.
While running my first half marathon yesterday (I know, right? I can hardly believe I did that, but I did that!) We passed these “green” roofs under the 35th Street viaduct. I never would have noticed them had I not been on foot.
Note the Milwaukee Brewer’s stadium in the distance. That’s where the race began and ended.
Then I notice a group of sheep grazing on one of the roofs!
They’re not real, but they sure looked it at first, especially after about 8 miles of running, a point at which unicorns trotting alongside me would have seemed reasonable. I had to go back today with my camera to make sure I had really seen them and to share them with you!
Jenny, me, and Nick. This was Jenny’s second half and first for me and Nick.
