Apologies to our old friends The Rolling Stones but the lyric seemed to fit the order of the day as thousands of folks head to downtown Walnut Creek today, Saturday, to participate in the March for Our Lives rally.
Police have advised casual visitors to avoid driving and walking in the downtown area between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. due to the march. Downtown streets most affected by the march include Civic Drive, Broadway, Mt. Diablo Blvd., Main St. and Locust Street.
And on Sunday, members of a Topeka, Kansas-based Baptist Church will visit Walnut Creek and bring their “God Hates F(l)ags” messaging to four local churches, whose members tell us they intend to “cookie bomb” the visitors with love and welcoming counter-messaging of their own.
It could get loud, and we’re hoping everyone keeps their heads when taking it to the streets this weekend.
