Re: “State Rep: Protesters Were "A Group of Malcontent Thugs Who Were Likely Paid"

I was there Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I was born in North Carolina, grew up here, and now I am raising my children here. I was there because I love this state and its people and I cannot sit by and watch as the elected leaders entrusted to act in the best interest of North Carolinians do HARMFUL things - like when they passed HB2.

I cannot sit idly by when our state legislature completely disregards NC law on open meetings, notice periods, and the prohibition against deliberating and acting on legislation in secret meetings instead of in open session.

My friends who had planned on joining me on Tuesday ended up not being able to go - but they still wanted to help. I asked them to send food - and they did. I personally took delivery of pizza and water that was sent in on Tuesday - and none of it was paid for by the NAACP or any organization. It was paid for by a loose network of friends - all North Carolinians - who cared about what was happening to their state and wanted to help however they could.

I should have been home with my children getting ready for Christmas, but because the NCGA has continually betrayed the very spirit of honest, open dialog and debate upon which our country was founded - well, I felt that there was no choice but to go and bear witness.
