Morristown, New Jersey town hall

On Saturday, March 24th one of the #MarchForOurLives rallies took place in Morristown, New Jersey. 

Protesters came with clever signs and a real sense of accomplishment amongst the surprisingly large crowd. About 13,000 marchers showed upMorristown was one of about 800 sibling marches to the main one in Washington, DC.

It was a cold day but with blue skies and bright sunshine. Drones flew overhead, speeches were made, and determination for real change pervaded the crowd. 

First, we gathered in front of town hall.

The Farm at Green Village in lovely Green Village, New Jersey, contains over 30 acres of trees, plants, flowers, and animals. They have an amazing and beautiful variety of flora and fauna, and everything you'd need for your garden or patio.

It is one of my favorite places in New Jersey  because it is pretty and peaceful. 

It's a magical place . . .

Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital was originally built in 1876 as the New Jersey State Lunatic Asylum at Morristown. Obviously there was no “political correctness” at the time.

The Chesters are two lovely and historic little towns. Yes, there are two Chesters, just as there are two Mendhams right nearby (this is typical of New Jersey). Despite some commercialization in the last few years, the Mendhams, Chesters and the whole area is delightfully rural, peaceful, and beautiful.
