Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” in Washington, D.C. Gone Global

The Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” has found a foothold internationally, and is sparking similar minded events from Paris to Mt. Everest, reports the Christian Science Monitor.

Stewart’s rally, which will be held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., October 30 is an attempt to try to turn the temperature down on America’s political rhetoric, which has become dangerously overheated in the eyes of the comedian. The appeal to our better angels has struck a cord with a lot of disaffected citizens who feel like their voices aren’t being heard above the din.

It looks like everyone all over the world is getting excited over this rally. I have been randomly seeing the buzz about it on several online French and Spanish media as well.

I believe such a rally is indeed needed and way over due.  Although, I was looking forward to attend it but I have to monitor it from Barcelona 🙂
