The Rescue – Indianapolis

29 04 2009

Here are a few pictures from The Rescue in Indianapolis.  My cousin Dana came to visit (for Grand Prix weekend) and we took the bus down to Indianapolis from West Lafayette on a Saturday morning, right after the breakfast club drunkenness.

It was an unbelievable experience, except I thought it would last till dawn the next day – we were rescued by a representative from Congressman Andre Carson’s office at around 8:30PM.  We had the choice to leave or ride the bus to Chicago, because they weren’t doing  so well at their rescue.  About 500 people showed up – not bad at all!

I got two AWESOME t-shirts out of it… here’s the link to the site if you want to buy one: http://store.invisiblechildren.com/
