Here are a few wet participants, in front of a few of the flags that surround the Washington Monument.
Toward the right, in this view facing the base of the Monument, the man in green, wearing glasses and a baseball cap, talking to a man in a light blue shirt, is Colonel Harry Riley, the principal organizer of the event.
These men present their grievances, and their opinions of the president and his signature piece of legislation.
Looking to the west, a view of the Lincoln Memorial, its reflecting pool, and part of the World War II memorial.
Steve Elliott of A 'Cross America Ministries brought his cross. Somehow, I don't think that anyone crucified by the Romans had the luxury of a wheel at the bottom end.
A few protesters and their signs, and another group with theirs.
From the location of the photo immediately above, several people gave some short speeches, including Pastor Wiley Drake, the official OAS chaplain, wearing the suit and tie. Colonel Riley, in green, stands next to him. By this time, the weather had greatly improved.
Here's Another shot with Pastor Drake.
Pictures from the event will continue in the next post.
