Jessi Rosenberg, a 19 year-old VCU student attended the March 2 silent counter protest organized by the Virginia Holocaust Museum against a demonstration of the Westboro Baptist church, an independent organization that travels around the United States picketing and spreading anti-gay, anti-Jewish messages, among other beliefs.
