The marchers stay to the sidewalks on both sides of the street but span two miles long!! And more keep joining from home.
§6:30pm, forget the sidewalk now. More people keep flowing into the street.

This second march was one sidewalk and one lane thick, and about 1 mile long. Again, as we walked through the neighborhoods of Concord, more and more people came out of their homes and into the streets.
§Into the night. 8pm in front of St. Asissi church.

While marchers still flow down the street, the church yard, about the size of a highschool field and yard, fills up so quickly that many at the end of the march choose to turn around and head back down the march route.

Organizers provided charter buses for those in need of a lift, but most people decided to march back by foot. At this time, all that could be heard was the honking "si,se puede" of horns and cheers of marchers.
§Until the next time.
