Bucket List: Participate In A Peaceful Protest

I’ve never been the most political person, and I definitely would call my self more of a laziest than an activist.  Up until now, the farthest I’ve delved into the world of voicing political opinion has been through a particularly dusty dystopian manuscript I wrote a few years ago and kind of forgot about.
