The chants and slogans still echo in my mind "Show me what democracy looks like... This is what democracy looks like!" I've seen democracy in action, it's beautiful to watch, it takes long hours and still the wheels move slowly, the actions that you take look fleeting, but over time those small drum beats will swell and soon after a crescendo will fall. I saw men and women of character striving after the highest office in the land hoping against hope to right the wrongs and fix a nation to work for all its people. No matter what you're political leaning, this is what it means to be a democracy. Whether I agree or disagree with those that I'm photographing, I'm moved every time that I'm lucky enough to see it.
