  5. Thank you for organizing this march. I was part of it.
    Please think about the following suggestions:
    Make sure stage for speakers is elevated at least 3 feet from the groud.
    Intersperse songs and speakers
    Keep speaker number and speeches to a minimum.
    We have to come with an easy song that reflects our way of thinking/our philosophy. After all philosophy precedes actions that we take .
