In one of the first protests/rallies since Charlottesville last week, the people of Boston showed up, and they showed up in massive numbers. The Nazis? Not so much. As frustrated and disgusted and disillusioned as we get with this country, images like these? They are really, really heartening.
Here’s a look at Boston today.
