At about ten, the neighbors in my building stopped traffic to protest not having a traffic light. Someone
was hit by a car coming around the bend. My first time in a courtroom (not my last)! Anyway, they
won - compromise: a yellow caution light

That work me up to the power of the people. Early 20's I worked with CORE. demonstrations and
marches and lots of signs. Birmingham, Al., Shreveport, La. the power of the sit-in's and marches
but not without casualties. Gay rights........demonstrations........I didn't march against Vietnam
even though I didn't believe we should have been there because many of young men were
drafted and deserved our support no matter what we felt about government at the time.
