Thousands of people gathered on the national mall for a march and rally to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington in which the Dr Martin Luther King gave his famous 'I have a Dream Speech'. Attendees were met with beautiful weather for the rally and march that followed and the crowd was filled with an energy of love and togetherness that felt more like a church congregation than the very diverse mix of Americans from every sector of the population. The two most memorable moments for me were when an African American homeless women who I was talking to spontaneously and loudly refuted an African American man who was also loudly condemning "homosexual's" and their white enablers. The second was during Dr King's daughter Bernice's prayer prior to the start of the march. The thousands of people who filled the mall all took the hands of who ever was close to them and prayed together. It was a transcendent moment.
