I find that I have to keep the tissues close at hand as the emotions of 1/21/2017 overwhelm me.
Millions marched the world over.
More than 500,000 in DC with no arrests.
Not one negative comment or action did I witness.
Solidarity. Love. Passion. Commitment. Unity.
As my good friend and fellow marcher, Jim, noted “Now it is time to see that this marvelous moment becomes a meaningful movement that perseveres forward toward a future where justice and equality prevail. We shall not rest”.
That is our challenge.
About these images: As we walked the 2 miles along East Capitol St, from RFK Stadium to the rally site, the people who lived there welcomed us with signs, high fives (and high walkers), cheers and thumbs up.
As you might imagine, I have hundreds of photos to process. I’ll be sharing more about this historic march as the days and weeks go by. I realize that not all of you agree with me on these issues, but for those who do:
Let’s Make it a Movement!
I’ve already planned a Let’s Elect More Women event and havee got a postcard writing party in the works.
