    Many people turned out or stopped by to demonstrate their support for the people of Burma. We passed out a lot of educational information while taling to passer-bys. Some chanted while others had a round circle discussion. Then everyone, about 60 people, got together on a large tarp to chant the loving kindnesss sutra.
