protest. thoughts?

So there have been anti-Proposition 8 protests and vigils at the Capitol in Sacramento for the past three days. I was busy Weds and Thurs, and I didn't go last night because I didn't know they were still doing it until I saw it on the late news. There will be another one tomorrow afternoon. I'm considering going.

I do believe in the democratic process, and I don't think that the right course of action is to use the courts to overturn something that won a popular vote.

I believe that in the near future, enough people will open their hearts and minds such that we will be able to have popularly-accepted gay marriage in California.

I'd like to be able to teach my children about standing up for what they believe in.

Could make a sign that said, "Someday we'll be tolerant" or something to that effect.

Don't really want to go if it's all going to be angry shouting and demanding that 8 be immediately repealed.

Whadda you think I should do?
