March Around the Georgetown Courthouse

Fiorella wishes she could tell you that she's all fired up about the march she's been trying to organize in lil' old Gtown to coincide with the national "March for Our Lives" shindigs, but actually, she's biting her lip and praying that she doesn't make a total fool of herself. (On the other hand, it wouldn't be the first time.)

Fio didn't have the connections to get the word out as well as she should have so there will probably only be a few people there, although that would more than double the participants involved when she did a solo number for the 2018 Women's March. But she's been told she will have press coverage this time--that is, if the newspaper can spare someone from the Easter egg hunt story. But the possibility  of the presence of the press puts new pressure on Fiorella. (1) She's afraid she'll bomb an interview, and (2) she's suddenly realized there should be a chant or something as marchers walk along and some kind of wrap-up speech at the end. In past times, Fiorella could have managed everything, but she doubts if her voice and brain are up to it now.

To make a long story short, pray for Fiorella and her cause, but don't worry if she falls on her face. Remember, she lives in the boondocks and can hide herself from public view for months on end.
