Today’s afternoon of hooping in lively Dupont Circle was such a good time. We had everyone involved in the action from timid spinners and curious onlookers to lunchbreak professionals & uniformed soldiers. If only the hooping love were enough to wage world peace. At least for a few hours today we waged some serious peace [...]
