The kids were in full force today. They were protesting, at one of the busiest intersections in the area. Occupying, all four corners of the intersection. The youth were debating, whether they should march in the streets, without a permit to march. They decided to wait, and take more time to think about it. In the meantime, we all took a knee for 8 minutes and 47 seconds, on all four corners of the intersection. The time it took, for George Floyd to die.

We still had yet to decide, whether we were going to march or not. Then the kids thought of an ingenuous way, to march, without marching in the streets. That was safe, and at the same time, would not be a hindrance to drivers trying to reach their destinations. They decided to march, in the crosswalks. They would push the button, wait for the signal to tell them, when it was time to walk. Then start walking in the crosswalk. And with fifteen seconds to cross. They could safely stop, in the middle of the crosswalk, and turn towards the cars, facing them, waiting at the red light. And Display their Protest signs, in full view of the drivers and the passengers. And still have enough time on the clock, to make it to the other side. Genius!
