By 10 pm, there were high numbers, but not all cities/towns counted.  I'm happy with 3 million, but I dare say a lot who stayed home also supported this effort.

I've got a couple dozen more photos, and many of my that will be tomorrow's post.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. — Dale Carnegie


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
