I was deeply moved by the whole experience of the Women’s March yesterday. How 55,000 marchers fit onto the lawn in front of the deco Administration Building, I didn’t know. They did, and I was amazed.
I was amazed by the passion and caring of the men and women of all ages.
They walked if they could. Many waited at the finish line with their walkers or wheel chairs. Many my age had marched before. We had lunch, water, umbrellas, and some even had rain poncho’s. I remember being unable to get a credit card in my own name, unable to get birth control, and unable to do many things the men could do. This March, many men took part also.
Since yesterday, I have been posting my and other’s photos on Facebook. Sharing this passion. Sharing our reactions. The New York Times has done a Wonderful job compiling compelling photos of Marchers all over the world, and I am sharing them with you on this link.
