There was another small group of young men facing them, smiling, chatting, laughing, and sending out the love. They didn't let the bad guys get to them, and I was proud of them for keeping their own balance and peace. I might have changed the "God Hates Ignorance" sign to something like "God Loves Me Too," but still, they were sweet.
As we walked back toward the main (happy) crowd, it began to rain, and soon it was pouring. Rather than dampen spirits, it seemed to elevate the collective mood another notch, and people cheered and danced in the downpour. And as many of us took shelter under a big tent and enjoyed the music onstage, the angry yelling in the background slowly faded, and the Mean People were simply washed away.
