Also, the below was posted in the comment section, but wanted to make sure everyone saw it:
Just got home from the Walk sponsored by the wonderful Duke Mothers through Durham. It was great, lots of people walking, purposely supporting the 3 Lax players, their families, and the duke lacrosse program. Very positive energy. Beautiful day to walk outside. Met a couple real interesting people who I really liked speaking and listening to. I hope I get a chance to speak with Kathy again!And, via e-mail:
There really weren’t any counter demonstrations. But I did have a chat with a true nifong supporter!It is kind of amazing to me that they are still out there. He kind of called me some bad things for supporting the lax players. I appreciated him as a human being. Did a lot of listening as he shared his viewpoints. I focused on healing and trying to bring people more together instead of increasing polarization. Make love not war kind of thing.
Towards the conclusion of our discussion, I did tell him that I thought nifong and [the accuser] should do jail time. We shook hands at the end.
The walk went great. NO Victoria!!!
Looked like maybe 125+ people.
The Durham police were wonderful.
