Poor Peoples Campaign in DC today

I had hoped to be in DC today, but here's the next best thing. Our bus broke down before it arrived for us to load up. Of course that's much better than breaking down on the way...or the way back. Perhaps I saw more of the event from home online. It lasts three hours hours. I know that's too long for most folks. Just catch Rev. Barbers speech at 1 hour 20 minutes to get the gist. I'm curious if you think this is the movement we've been hoping for. It inspires me.
