a.m., July 3nd.
I wake up, can't sleep because I'm nervous about Chain Off
in the morning. I've never done anything this brave/crazy
before, and I know it will take all the courage I have to
pull it off and make it work. I know I need my sleep, because
33 hours is a heck of a long time. Needless to say, just
knowing I NEED sleep is enough to keep me awake most of
a.m., July 4th.
My heart opens for the dogs, and I become truly one with
them. I've put myself in their shoes, and I experience their
daily life. I also experience solidarity with the plight
of the homeless people, sleeping in the doorway of a store,
while people walk by and avoid looking at me. I go back
p.m., July 4th.
We form a circle around the doghouse, and light candles
to celebrate the conclusion of our vigil. Terri, Amy, Eric,
and Rocky and I each say a few words about the event. I
tell them how grateful I am for all they've done, and what
this has meant to me..."
4th, 2004 & 2005 I chained myself to a doghouse for
Amandah Povilitus chained herself for 8 hours.
