In which I accomplish two life goals with a single stroke

Friday was an interesting day, two things I've always want to do got done: Attending a political rally, and visiting the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Me and several of my friends attended the "Stand Up For Religious Freedom" rally in upper senate park around noon on Friday, there were many of these rally's happening simultaneously all over the country. The catalyst of course being the infringements Obama care makes on religious freedom. It was good experience to be a political rally for the first time and to feel the energy there of people united in a cause. After this event we went to the Supreme Court for our class briefing, which incidentally was where the rally was marching, but we left early to get there on time. We got to walk around the Supreme Court building and watch a film on the court, then we had a briefing with a BYU graduate who is clerking for Justice Kagen. That was really interesting and gave us kind of an inside view of the court.
