One-woman rally

Sherry Thornton vowed to stand on the corner at Fifth and Adams streets everyday until Nov. 3, if that’s what it takes to get people out to vote. “As a country this is a democratic republic,” she said. “This is our country. We’re in this collectively it’s all of us together. It’s all of us are none of us, we have to stand together we have to stay strong.” Her one-woman rally on June 2 comes on the heels of rioting and protests around the world following the death of George Floyd in Minnesota. Thornton said the “hate has to stop” and one step toward peace that almost everyone can take is to vote.
