I saw you from afar when they were introducing you with the bull horn! And everyone was clapping at you. I was standing with 2 placards facing Constitution Avenue, near the traffic lights! We need to meet soon in person!

Very few people attended, not covered much in any news channel except 2 (Business week and roll call are paid ones with volunteers contribution)
Finally it is a Total Diaster rally due to lack of partcipation from members.The members attended is around 400 to 500.

People may start jumping on me, but friends it is the mere fact and reality.
If somebody can not accept reality, it is their issue.

Jaime 09-18-2007 10:11 PM

It was very good. Three lawmakers addressed the reception and the food was great.

But I couldn't get away from a business meeting in Dallas on Monday, as I had aleady cancelled some important business on Tuesday so I could be at the rally. My plane got into DCA at 1:30 am this morning!

The food part sounds great (I haven't eaten today because I have been so excited about the rally's success), but especially what great success with the lawmakers!!!

I don't know what it is, but I had this great feeling while I was on the Rally, a feeling of pride, courage, union. I really enjoyed being in the rally, seeing all other members, families, and little kids. It just made me feel I belong somewhere.
I had to mention this again, I know there is at least 10 people in my organization who promised to come to the Rally, I was looking all over for you guys, Then I found out none of you showed up after I called you at your offices! That really made feel bad, you all work in Virginia less than 30 minutes from DC. You should be a shame of your selves. A lot of people came from all over the country with their families and little kids. I just need to understand why?
We all in the same situation here, I am not going to speak to you again. sorry

Sometimes they call you Jamie instead of Jaime.

Jaime is a very macho name in Spanish.:)

Jaime 09-18-2007 10:19 PM
