Please post your updates from D.C. and from news reports here as well as your photos of the day.

Our Walter Reed salute to the troops last night was very well attended. Upwards of 800 people were there over the three-plus hours of the demonstration.

Photos and video taken by This Ain'tHell taken in daylight before the bulk of the crowd showed can be viewed here.

Free Republic 9/11 Candlelight Vigil from Washington DC

Update: 9-12 March on DC

[Anyone know why the US flag in the pic at post 259 appears to be at half mast?]

My neighbor has been flying their flag at half mast since the marxist was elected.

Godspeed, Patriots!!! How I wish I could be there—you are marching into history!! :*)

Thank you all for representing ME and my children—be careful!

I am gobsmacked at the size of the crowd in the streets already on those traffic cameras—it’s only like 10:30 in the morning! WOW!!!

Someone said that CSPAN would be covering it. Don’t have the link though. I don’t think CSPAN is going to cover it until it starts though officially.

Yes, they are out of touch.

But so far they are also covering the event much more than FOX or CNN.

My point was that not all could go to DC no matter how much we wanted to. We don’t all have the money or the time to go off for two or three days.

I sent a screen shot (with url) of the huge crowd to Drudge- begged him to post it front and center at the top of his site...we’ll see.

The more of us that send it to him- the better!

The 100,000 are merely a representation of those who would have liked to have been there, but could not. Maybe they should multiply the 100,000 by 5 or more. We are Freaks for the Republic.

The march wasn't supposed to start until 11:30am.

I think the area had become too packed to hold any more, and they had to start marching.

I'll betcha if they wanted to, they could encircle the downtown area from the Capitol to the White House. With people to spare.

God Bless them all!

They are going to get a hell of a lot more shocked. Let’s do the math.

Current time in DC: 10:40AM
Event starts at: 1:00PM

There’s going to be a hell of a lot more people coming in the next 2-1/2 hours than we’ve seen so far.

We have to make a concerted effort not to watch any programs on NBC/CBS/ABC regardless of how good the shows are.

History in the making and the refuse to cover it? Frig Um, let their advertisers feel it.

The crowd gathered at FREEDOM PLAZA between 14th and 13th, E and Pennsylvania. It has greatly overflowed the plaza into all the surrounding street areas and the other traffic cams show large crowds at other cross streets along Pennsylvania Avenue toward the Capitol. This is a very large crowd of Patriots. GOD BLESS THEM ALL and all those who stand behind them!

FReep On!

I wonder if FNC has been intimidated by all the criticism they recieved for their coverage of the April 15th tea parties. I’m disappointed with their coverage so far.

The MSNBC anchor babe is incredulous . . her voice was rising when she said: “There have to be 100,000 people there”.

If they are saying 100,000 you know there has to be many more there.

Hi Hildy, when we get a shot of you guys on TV shocking, the media is truly shocked but then tries to let us know that Bama is more popular now due to his speech.

"Imagine how small the crowd would be if all the people who scrambled and sacrificed to be there found reasons they could not attend."

I am waiting for an unemployment extension. I was supposed to get a check a week ago, but I have to wait until NEXT week for a phone hearing on my extension. Who knows when I am getting paid. Hubby is laid off too, but cannot collect unemployment. So I have a whopping 78 cents in the check book. I have to go write a bad check just for food, and pray I get some money before the electric gets shut off. And you want to pick on me because I did not go to DC!!! How wrong to post that.
