I love this recap. The Thinking Atheist is my favorite YouTuber, and his take on the rally echoes mine. Despite the fact that I was lucky enough to mingle with the speakers and promoters of the rally, I didn’t need to make any effort to speak with people who just wanted to be there. Everyone just seemed to be elated and excited to see so many others who cherish secular ways.

I spent the night after the rally in conversations with a professor from Arkansas, a post-grad student of physics, an oil-worker, several YouTubers, the emcee, several of the speakers, and a myriad of folks who just sat for a few minutes to hear the discussion. It was awesome! All open to anyone, at the Marriott convention center.

The general feeling…from ALL…was just happiness. It felt great to sit and discuss things amidst others who have obviously put much thought into the position that they painfully defend. It is not easy. It is not simple. We all took comfort in the fact that…we are many!
