A mixed day emotionally. The best part of the day? Sitting by chance next to a grandmotherly volunteer who struck up a conversation with a little boy next to her. When it was time for him to leave, he said to her, with the biggest smile imaginable "I really enjoyed our chat" The worst? Seeing the vandalism that a group of anarchists from out of town did to our city.
