Today I Marched

awomans-place

Today I marched in solidarity with 300,000 other New Yorkers to send a message to the new administration in Washington DC.

It was glorious. Women and men of all faiths, nationalities and backgrounds came together to make the voices heard. We are the people and we will not let this administration drag us back to the dark ages.

It reminded me of the power of the voice of the ordinary citizen. It also reminded me that it took Donald Trump to be elected to light the fire under the behinds of Americans who normally stay silent.

This is our mission for the next four years: to remind our government who is in charge. I heard today a statement that summed up the rally: the constitution start with we, the people, not I, the President.

I have a feeling that this is not the first, nor will this be the last rally that I will be attending over the next four years.
